Over 180 years have passed since Cyrus Hall McCormick began to dream of important innovations for the farming world. His dream came true on the McCormick family farm in Raphine, Virginia when he created a brand of agricultural implements that shortly became recognized worldwide and earned him the title “Father of Modern Agriculture” in history books. Cyrus dreamed big. After he had obtained a patent for a special plough and for a famous reaper in 1834, the young entrepreneur began to wonder how he could supply his implements to the continually expanding American market. Together with his brothers, William and Leander, Cyrus moved in 1847 from rural Virginia to Chicago where he established the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company. Almost 25 years later, the Great Chicago Fire destroyed the city and with it, the McCormick factory. Despite the serious financial loss, Cyrus didn’t give up and shortly afterwards, in 1873, built another plant. This was soon producing at full rate and actually processed over 10-thousand orders in 1874. When Cyrus McCormick died in 1884, his son Cyrus jr took over the business and expanded the company, which already possessed 50% of the harvesting machinery market. At the beginning of the 20th century, the McCormick Harvesting Machine Company merged with four competitor enterprises and created the International Harvester Co., which started to produce tractors in 1906. This led, in the ’20’s, to the production of the McCormick Farmall. It was designed for cultivation work between rows and was the most popular tractor of all. The company became a multinational in the ’30’s, when it started producing tractors in Great Britain. The colour of the tractors also changed during that period, when the well-known shade of red was chosen for their body. The group continued to be the world’s unrivalled leader in its particular sector right up to the ’50’s when it began to manufacture other products, like trucks, buses and refrigerators. Despite the high turnovers achieved during the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, the profit margins became very slim until the situation reached breaking point. Cyrus’s brand was sold to a finance company in the middle of the ‘80’s. At the end of the ‘90’s, corporate turnovers, consolidations and mergers offered McCormick a fresh chance. The Morra family submitted a bid for two European facilities and the McCormick name. A new era began in 2001: the new McCormick announced its presence on the market. Founded on the legacy of Cyrus McCormick, the brand thus continues to thrive by proposing products designed for the most demanding farming customers. By 2004, McCormick was offering as many as thirtyseven tractor models ranging from 37 to 280 HP. The range was subsequently renewed and updated to the most advanced technologies. New “X” ranges were launched in 2013: first the X4 and X7 Series and then the X5, X6 and X6 LWB Series. Group strategy consists of developing high-performance products of the finest quality. The production activities take place in Italy, where Argo Tractors has created a center of excellence. McCormick set a new standard in 2015 when it raised the power level to a higher extent by announcing the X8 Series. Tractors that boost the McCormick range beyond the 300 HP mark while underscoring yet again this famous brand’s never-ending endeavour to achieve continuous innovation, quality and performance.
