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.
AGCO is a global leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of agricultural solutions. The company has operations in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region. AGCO Australia Limited markets six leading brands of farm machinery, including Massey Ferguson, Fendt, Valtra, Gleaner, Challenger and Iseki, and various precision farming products.
Sustainability is embedded within the company’s culture. AGCO is committed to helping farmers provide food, fuel, and fibre to the world’s population. At the company’s core, it wants to help solve one of the world’s most critical needs, a more sustainable food system with improved food production, storage, and access to market. AGCO works with farmers to help make their crops more productive and to reduce post-harvest waste, so more food gets to consumers.
AGCO understands that their business and the communities in which they operate are dependent on one another. All the company’s philanthropic efforts work towards social responsibility, its positive economic value and environmental impact. In 2018, AGCO launched the AGCO Agriculture Foundation (AAF), a testament to their commitment to support their farmers in feeding the world. The AAF will support non-profit initiatives that contribute to Zero Hunger, one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations. The AAF’s mission is to initiate impactful programs to support food security and sustainable agricultural development in communities around the world.
