The Allis-Chalmers Company was formed by the merger of the Edward P. Allis Company, Fraser and Chalmers Company, Gates Iron Works, and Dickson Manufacturing Company. Financial difficulties led to a reorganization in 1914. The newly renamed Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Company entered the farm machinery business and introduced the 10-18, its first tractor. Allis-Chalmers had great success starting in the 1930s with the WC and the small farm B and C. In 1985, the farm equipment operations were sold to Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz of Germany. Tractor production continued under the Deutz Allis name until 1990, when the company was sold and renamed AGCO (Allis Gleaner Company). AGCO continued to manufacture tractors under the AGCO Allis brand until 2002 when the tractors were renamed AGCO.
