Who We Are

Minsk Tractor Works was founded on May 29, 1946. Today the works, which employs more than 17000 people, has turned into one of the largest manufacturers of agricultural machinery not only in CIS countries, but also worldwide. And the famous trademark “Belarus” is of great value to us — not only commercial, but also to a certain extent patriotic.

In 2006, MTW celebrated its 60th anniversary. For outstanding achievements in economic development the enterprise was awarded Honorary State Banner of the Republic of Belarus. In October 2008, the Minsk Tractor Works specialists brought a gold medal from the Russian agro-industrial exhibition “Golden Autumn”, held in Moscow. And in 2009 at the International specialized exhibition “AGRITECHNICA” in Hanover president of the German Agricultural Society (DLG) Karl Albrecht Bartmer handed a silver medal to the representatives of Belarusian industrial flagship. It was the first time in the entire history of “AGRITECHNICA” that the manufacturer from CIS countries has won such a high award.
