SAME Deutz-Fahr |
Deutz-Fahr, now a part of SAME Deutz-Fahr, traces its roots to 1894 when Deutz was founded. Deutz merged with Fahr in 1961 to become Deutz-Fahr. KHD, (Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz), became the owner of Deutz-Fahr.
In 1969, KHD purchased the KÖLA company, a German-based manufacturer of combines.
Other joint ventures or cooperations included the Agrale-Deutz, with the Agrale tractor company; collaborations with the Indian Kirloskar company, manufacturer of engines and tractors; MeMo, a German company that exported Deutz-based tractors to the USA; PMA (CMT and Cirta) in Algeria; owned 30% of the Steiger company after International Harvester sold out; Torpedo, which built licensed tractors, sometimes under the Torpedo Deutz name; and trac-technik, (derived from Deutz Intrac's).
KHD moved to grow the company with the purchase of the assets of the Allis-Chalmers company in 1985, which included the Gleaner combines. Allis-Chalmers traces its roots to the Monarch, Advance-Rumely and Gleaner companies. With the merger/purchase, the Allis-Chalmers name was 'retired', and it became Deutz-Allis.
KHD and Deutz-Allis struggled financially, and Deutz-Fahr sold the North American operations to a newly formed group, the Gleaner-Allis Corporation, later changed to Allis Gleaner Corporation, or AGCO, in 1990.
In 1995, KHD sold Deutz-Fahr to S-L-H, or SAME, which renamed itself SAME Deutz-Fahr (SDF). The combine business was discontinued and out-sourced to AGCO. All Deutz-Fahr combines were then built at AGCO's Dronningborg factory in Denmark.
