Celebrating 95 Years

                    April 13, 2020

                    A Moment in History

                    In 1925, Holt Manufacturing Co. and C.L. Best Tractor Co. joined to better meet the needs of customers, building on each other’s strengths to deliver innovative products and form a world-class dealer network. What was needed then remains true today – our customers wanted to do more than just buy a product. They needed to establish an ongoing relationship with someone to help them get the job done. That old saying remains true – buy the iron, get the company.

                    But our 95-year milestone is only one memorable moment in our history. Over the years, our products and services have helped with infrastructure projects that built and powered our modern world. Take a few minutes to celebrate our heritage and the amazing people who built this company one breakthrough at a time. Throughout history, our people continue to respond to challenges with one answer – let’s do the work!
