Massey Ferguson was established in 1847 as a farm machine workshop by inventor Daniel Massey. Daniel Massey later merged with a foundry owner in the late 1800s to manufacture farm equipment. Over 50 years later they collaborated with engineer Harry Ferguson and became the first to manufacture tractors with a three-point hitch. The Massey Ferguson company was purchased by AGCO Corporation in 1995. AGCO Corporation manufactures heavy equipment which is sold under four brands: Challenger, Fendt, Valtra and Massey Ferguson.
