The history of tractors of the Finnish brand, now known as Valtra, began after the Second World War, when many factories that produced weapons and spare parts for aircraft were converted to produce agricultural equipment that was urgently needed at that time. The reprofiling also took place at Valmet (Valtion Metaallitehtaat a large Finnish conglomerate of state-owned metal plants) which was the starting point in the development of the legendary Valtra brand.
In 1951, Valmet opened a plant for the production of agricultural machinery and launched its first tractor, Valmet 20. The start of sales was so successful that a year later the company had already produced 75 tractors, and by September 1954 the number of produced agricultural machines was close to 2000.
Soon another significant event in the history of the brand is taking place the merger with the Swedish
company Volvo BM, the main specialization of which was the production of vehicles for the transportation and loading of soil. The tandem of two large companies arose in 1979 and in
1982-1987. successfully existed under the brand name Volvo BM Valmet. Then, in 1982, Volvo completely sold its share of the assets of the tractor company.
In 1997, the brand changed its name to our usual Valtra. Since 2001, a series of next changes has taken place: in 2004, Valtra accepts AGCO's offer of cooperation, which has been successfully continued to this day. Today Valtra tractors are sold in more than 75 countries, including Russia, where the equipment of a famous Finnish brand can be purchased from authorized dealers of the AGCO-RM joint venture.
