Speaking on the occasion, Mr. S.Sridhar, Chief Executive Officer, Escorts Agri Machinery, said, “For the last one and a half years, Escorts has concentrated on bringing the best of technology from around the world to Indian farmer and Farmtrac has been a brand that is transforming Indian tractor industry. We at Escorts have taken the lead and initiative to change the industry’s perspective of Indian farmer who till now was viewed through same prism as 4 decades ago. The tractor industry at large tended to overlook his evolution from being just a farmer to a customer for whom, in addition to power and efficiency, style and comfort also matters. Other automobile sections like the car and bikes understood this trend and transformed over a period of time. However, the tractors, on which the farmer spends most of his time, continued to look the same old tractor. With this New series, we want to give Indian farmers that glamour quotient in a tractor. Just like the car and bike became status symbols, our tractors will become a status symbol for the customers. Today, we bring the most contemporary designs for better driving comfort and feel with the new Farmtrac series.”
