Allis-Chalmers tractors' history as
a manufacturer began in the
1840s in Milwaukee.  
Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing
Company was incorporated in
1913.  By 1914, they officially
entered into the farm equipment
business.

The expansion of Allis-Chalmers
tractors through the acquisition
of eight manufacturing
companies, broadened the scope
of its power equipment business.
After the beginning of World War
I, this Allis-Chalmers began
manufacturing farm tractors. In
1928 it took over the Monarch
Tractor Company and made the
Monarch track-type tractor under
the name Allis-Chalmers.  
Allis-Chalmers also purchased
the Advance-Rumely Company in
1931 to expand their line of
agricultural implements,
specifically farm tractors and
threshing machines.

Allis-Chalmers added many
innovations to farm equipment
and became a very large tractor
and equipment company in North
America.  In 1985, Allis-Chalmers
eventually sold the farm
equipment division to K-H-Deutz
AG of Germany.  Duetz in turn
sold to AGCO, Inc. in 1990.  
Allis-Chalmers tractors still
maintained an office in Milwaukee
up until January, 1999.

AGCO expanded their farm
equipment business, primarily in
Europe and South America, and
is now a world leader in
agricultural machinery.

Allis-Chalmers tractors are now
known as AGCO tractors.  AGCO
tractors are thus a direct
descendent of the revered
Allis-Chalmers tractors brand in
North America, and still sporting
that same orange color.
