History

Titan Machinery was founded in 1980 by its long-time CEO David Meyer and a partner. They started the company with two dealerships in Wahpeton, North Dakota and Lisbon, North Dakota. By 2003 Titan had grown to 13 dealerships. [4] In December 2007 Titan Machinery was taken public with 34 dealerships and US$300 million in revenue at the time. [5]

In late 2011 Titan Machinery expanded into Eastern Europe with its purchase of two Case IH dealerships in Bucharest and Timișoara, Romania. [6] In February 2012 the company acquired seven dealerships in Bulgaria [7] and one dealership in Serbia in December 2012. [8]

After receiving approval from CNH Industrial, Titan Machinery opened its first dealership in Vinnitsa, Ukraine on February 18, 2014. [9]

Following declining revenue in its agricultural equipment business, Titan closed 3 stores in South Dakota and Wyoming in March 2015 and reduced its workforce by 14% through layoffs, store closings and open positions not being filled. [10]

On April 30, 2018, Titan Machinery announced its acquisition of Agram Landtechnikvertrieb GmbH and its 5 Case IH dealerships in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg and Saxony in Germany. [11]

O'Connors has 15 dealership locations in the southeastern states Victoria, New South Wales, and South Australia. [12]

In January 2024 Titan Machinery acquired the assets of Scott Supply Co., a Case IH and New Holland dealership in Mitchell, South Dakota. [13]

In October 2023 Titan informed its shareholders, that the long-time CEO David Meyer would take on the role of executive chairman and be succeeded as CEO by Bryan Knutson. The change came into effect February 1, 2024. [14]

As of January 31, 2023, Titan Machinery operated a total of 123 dealerships worldwide. 86 of these dealerships were in the United States, located in Colorado (3 locations), Idaho (1 location), Iowa (15 locations), Kansas (1 location), Minnesota (16 locations), Missouri (1 location), Montana (1 location), Nebraska (16 locations), North Dakota (16 locations), Washington (1 location), Wisconsin (2 locations), Wyoming (1 location) and South Dakota (12 locations), as well as 37 European dealerships in Bulgaria (7 locations), Germany (7 locations), Romania (14 locations) and Ukraine (9 locations) [15] and a European headquarters at the Vienna airport.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Backhoe</span> Type excavating equipment (vehicle)

A backhoe—also called rear actor or back actor—is a type of excavating equipment, or digger, consisting of a digging bucket on the end of a two-part articulated arm. It is typically mounted on the back of a tractor or front loader, the latter forming a "backhoe loader". The section of the arm closest to the vehicle is known as the boom, while the section that carries the bucket is known as the dipper, both terms derived from steam shovels. The boom, which is the long piece of the backhoe arm attached to the tractor through a pivot called the king-post, is located closest to the cab. It allows the arm to pivot left and right, typically through a range of 180 to 200 degrees, and also enables lifting and lowering movements.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Driverless tractor</span> Autonomous farm vehicle

A driverless tractor is an autonomous farm vehicle that delivers a high tractive effort at slow speeds for the purposes of tillage and other agricultural tasks. It is considered driverless because it operates without the presence of a human inside the tractor itself. Like other unmanned ground vehicles, they are programmed to independently observe their position, decide speed, and avoid obstacles such as people, animals, or objects in the field while performing their task. The various driverless tractors are split into full autonomous technology and supervised autonomy. The idea of the driverless tractor appears as early as 1940, but the concept has significantly evolved in the last few years. The tractors use GPS and other wireless technologies to farm land without requiring a driver. They operate simply with the aid of a supervisor monitoring the progress at a control station or with a manned tractor in lead.
