AGCO Corporation has its roots in the North American farm equipment industry with its heritage reaching as far back as the mid 1800's through many of its brands. However, its direct lineage is from the Allis-Chalmers brand name. In 1990 KHD sold its Deutz Allis division to AGCO. Since that time, AGCO has become a world-wide farm machinery company through market growth and strategic acquisitions. Today with sales of approximately USD$7 billion, AGCO is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol AG.
Worldwide the AGCO Corporation is one of the largest manufacturers, designers and distributors of agricultural equipment. AGCO offers a full product line including tractors, combine harvesters, swathers, hay equipment and grounds care, and markets 22 brand names around the world.

AGCO's internal product development capabilities, along with acquired technologies, are the most advanced in the world. This global perspective makes us the one manufacturer that can truly meet every farmer's equipment needs. In the development stage, components are designed using the latest in electronic drafting equipment. The computers construct models that reflect true working environments and test components before the prototypes are built.
Many components sourced from outside suppliers used advanced design techniques as well. Many components used in AGCO products are engineered with sophisticated design systems such as laser doppler anemometry and computer modelling. These advanced techniques significantly improve product performance and reliability. Fendt, which was acquired in 1997, is widely accepted as having the world's most advanced tractor technology.
