How we operate

At Valtra we develop, manufacture and market superior quality machinery, and we provide added value to our customers' operations through tailor-made services and solutions. Our guiding principle is the continuous improvement of both our products and operations combined with great emphasis on preserving the environment and respecting the health and safety of our employees and customers.
More about our values and operating principles

Our values

Our values are the foundation of Valtra. They form the basis for our decisions and they guide our relationship with customers, suppliers, distributors, our parent company, our community and each other. Our five core values are team play, openness, reliability, own initiative and respect.

Team play
Our organisation is based on teamwork. Best results are achieved if the responsibility and honour of doing quality work is given to expert individuals, who work together with their colleagues towards common goals.

Openness
Good team play is only possible in an open and creative environment. Openness means that we can make optimal use of information, also unpleasant news, without delay. Openness encourages constructive evaluation among team members and helps us improve continuously.

Reliability
Reliability to us also means honesty and loyalty. We only make promises we can keep, and we make what we promise. This is how we ensure that our products are durable and of high quality, and our service is fast and reliable.

Own initiative
Valtra's team members are individuals, who have the authority to work independently. We encourage creative initiative and innovation.

Respect
At Valtra we act respectfully towards others and treamt everybody like we would like to be treated ourselves. We accept differences and value different cultures.

Preserving the environment

True to the Nordic tradition, Valtra puts great emphasis on the protection of the environment and our natural habitats. From production facilities to the development of new product features – we proactively seek ways to increase our environmental friendliness

Examples of how Valtra operations protect the environment

  • The ISO 14001 environmental certification was granted to Valtra already in 2000. Environmental regulations have not been a burden to Valtra; instead we have been happy to comply with them.
  • We make considerable investments to improve our ecofriendliness. Recent investments include green heat energy produced from burning waste wood and an air cleaning unit that burns solvent steam from the chassis painting unit.
  • We put great emphasis preserving natural resources by reducing waste and recycling. Factory waste is sorted into 26 different groups and there have been successful initiatives to reduce printouts and do away with disposable tableware.

How Valtra features protect the environment
Efficient and economical operations are usually also environmentally friendly. Valtra's innovations and unique product features help our customers operate efficiently and in an ecofriendly way. Here are just some examples:

  • EcoPower engines, EcoSpeed transmissions and lightweight structures increase the tractors' efficiency.
  • The possibility of using biodiesel and low engine idle speeds help preserving natural resources.
  • Automatic steering limits overlap and underlap, which in turn reduces the amount of driving overall.
  • The TwinTrac reverse drive system allows the tractor to be used in more ways, which reduces the need to manufacture or purchase redundant machinery.

Valtra is the only tractor manufacturer in the Nordic region

Our history

Valtra has manufactured tractors since 1951, but the company’s roots date back to the 19th century. Today’s Valtra tractors represent the culmination of two traditions: Finland’s Valmet and Sweden’s Volvo BM, itself an offshoot from the Eskilstuna Mekaniska Werkstad founded by Theofron Munktell in 1832.

Since its early days, Valmet has undergone huge change and development; not just in its name changes from Valmet and ValtraValmet to Valtra, but also in innovation of products and services.
