M&M Farm Equipment made into foray in Turkey by acquiring a 75.1% equity stake in Turkey-based Hisarlar – a farm equipment company based in Turkey.
Hisarlar is a market leader with 45% market share in soil preparation equipment in Turkey. The acquisition of Hisarlar will enable Mahindra to expand its footprint in Turkey and Europe, making this entity a global manufacturing base for various farm implements and tractor cabins. Hisarlar has 2 production facilities in Turkey and is a market leader in the soil preparation category of implements.
Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said:
Mahindra is the world’s No 1 tractor company by volume, with an on ground presence in India, USA, China and Japan, besides many other export markets. Our strategy going forward is to globalise aggressively and also expand our portfolio to include various new categories of farm machinery. This acquisition is an important milestone in our globalisation journey.
M&M FES reported sales of 15,909 units in January, 2017 against 15,065 units during the same time last year resulting in a growth of 5.6%.
