Valtra is an agricultural machinery manufacturer based in Finland. It was formed in 1951 by merging Valmet and Volvo Tractors. Valtra produces a full range of machines for agricultural, forestry, and grounds care applications.
Valtra is a Finnish company that manufactures and markets tractors and agricultural machinery. The company was founded in 1951 as a cooperative venture between six farmers in the municipality of Suolahti, Finland. In 1957, the cooperative hired engineer Jorma Halonen to design their first tractor prototype.
In 1963, the first Valtra tractor was sold to a customer. The following year, Valtra began exporting tractors to Sweden. By 1965, Valtra had established a dealer network in Finland and was selling its products internationally. Today, Valtra is a global brand with dealerships in more than 60 countries.
The current range of Valtra models includes six series: the T Series (utility tractors), A Series (general purpose), N Series (specialty), S Series (universal), M Series (multipurpose), and the X Series (premium). Valtra also manufactures a number of specialty models, including the HiTech (for vineyards and orchards), the Versu (for livestock farms), and the Active (for municipal use).
