About Us

The Farm Tractor and Machinery Trade Association has been in existence for over 100 years.

It was formed in 1913 when a group of dealers created the Agricultural Implement Trade Association Ireland ltd.

Who we are...

The Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association is recognised as the official representative trade body of the Irish farm machinery industry. Our mission is to promote the highest standards of professionalism in the farm machinery trade.

We work closely with the media and government bodies to influence legislation and provide support in areas such as training and apprenticeships. We provide advice, support and guidance to our members on various issues. We partner with other trade organisations and representative bodies to provide our members with a broader industry perspective and better representation. 

The Executive Council, which governs our association, comprises 20 people elected by our members. These are business owners or management level executives in our member firms.

They bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience from the industry. Our Executive Council represents every sector, and their involvement is voluntary. Executive Council meetings are held a minimum of nine times per year.

We have regular newsletters that keep our members up to date with news and current issues affecting the industry. We also send out regular and relevant news briefings to communicate with our members between newsletters.

The FTMTA produce statistical reports on the registration of new tractors, wheeled loaders, telescopic loaders, backhoes, combine harvesters and self-propelled forage harvesters in Ireland. We also compile information on the registration of used machinery imported into Ireland. If you are looking for market intelligence, we can provide these reports to you monthly. We can also tailor these reports to your specific needs.

Trade Exhibitions & Events

The FTMTA Farm Machinery Show has now grown to become the flagship event of the Irish farm machinery industry over the past 30 years. The most recent show in 2023 was a significant success, highlighting progress and sustainability in the industry. It brought together industry leaders, manufacturers, and farmers to explore the latest advancements. Key areas of focus were precision farming technologies, sustainability, and efficiency. The event emphasized technology’s role in the future of Irish agriculture, and it promoted innovation and unity within the community.

The FTMTA views the provision of a dedicated, professional machinery exhibition as a valuable service. Our latest event showcased the products and services of the farm machinery industry to the members of the association and the wider sector. We are happy that the show has grown to fill this role since it was first established.

Our show’s offer a chance to learn, network and explore new ideas. Whether you’re looking for practical on-farm advice or want to know what the future holds for agriculture, the Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association farm machinery show is the place to be.

The FTMTA farm machinery show will continue to build on its success as the leading farm machinery show in Ireland, where the Agricultural industry comes to do business.
