Valtra traces its origin to Valmet, Bolinder, Munktell and Volvo tractors. Bolinder-Munktell merged with Volvo in 1950 to form BM Volvo. In 1979, BM Volvo/Volvo BM was formed a joint venture with Valmet for tractor production , and the tractors were branded as Volvo BM Valmet. The name was shortened to just Valmet when they bought out Volvos share of the company in 19 ?? . In 2001 Partek purchased Valmet, and the tractors were renamed Valtra Valmet, and later that was shortened to just Valtra. In 2002, Partek was purchased by the KONE Corporation, and the Valtra tractor operation was put up for sale. AGCO purchased the tractor business in 2004.[1]

Valtra has factories in Finland and Brazil, with significant presences both places. Valtra licensed Eicher of India to build tractors under the Eicher Valtra and Euro Power brands. The Harkovsky Tractor Works (HTZ) of Ukraine signed a letter of intent with Valtra in 1998 for cooperation. The Hattat Company of Turkey began assembling Valtras in 2003.[2]

Innovative DesignEdit

One defining feature of the Valtra N-, S- and T-series is the fact that the seat can be turned through 180 degrees to meet a second set of foot pedals and a smaller steering wheel placed at the rear of the cab. This allows the operator to drive the tractor backwards and use rear mounted implements more efficiently.
