The Basildon Tractor Plant in Essex has a long tradition of innovation and product development, and continues to take pride in building the next generation of tractors that will shape agriculture.
It has produced some of the most popular tractor models ever made: the Ford 4000, 5000 and 7000, the iconic Ford 7810 and is now home to the award winning T6 and T7 tractor series. These state-of-the-art machines have become the heart of production at the plant – a testament to the popularity of the T6 and T7 series among farmers today.
More than 1.8 million tractors have been produced since 1964 and today 14,500 different tractor specifications can be built in Basildon. The plant proudly exports 85 per cent of its award-winning tractors to over 120 countries worldwide.
