3.4.2018

ZETOR continues in its expansion to new markets which was started in 2016. One of the first successes this year is starting cooperation with our Vietnamese partner, GOLDMAX Company. The territory of Vietnam is going to be supplied with tractors of MAJOR, PROXIMA, FORTERRA, and CRYSTAL ranges. The tractors were presented to the local farmers at ILDEX exhibition which took place in Ho Chi Minh City in March.

In Vietnam, farming is one the powerful sectors; the country located in South East Asia focuses mainly on growing rice, coffee, cotton, natural rubber, sugar cane, etc. Nearly 60 % of inhabitants are active in farming, forestry or fishing. Annually, over 3,000 tractors are sold in the country, mainly in the power range of 80-100 HP.

The advantage of a complex product offer and ZETOR’s good name in Vietnam opened the door to negotiations about cooperation. The first tractors shall be exported to the territory in April.

In the past, ZETOR was delivering tractors to Vietnam mainly in the period 1960-1980. Within the 20 years of cooperation, about 2,000 tractors were exported to the country; they were used mostly in paddy fields. ZETOR strives to draw on the successful legacy, thus strengthening its positions in South East Asia.
