Zetor is celebrating its 70th birthday. The first model to hit the market was the Z 25, which was popular and produced in hundreds of thousands and opened the gateway to mass production in August 1946 when the Zetor trademark was registered.
To commemorate the milestone a special logo, web site, competitions and many other events are being organised for employees, business partners and customers.
“The 70th anniversary is recognized as an important milestone in our history. Our customers, business partners and employees have always been with us, giving us their favour, trust and strength to further develop our brand and move it on. We acknowledge the legacy of our brand. It is both binding and inspiring to us. However, we always look ahead – to the future. That’s the reason why the celebration won’t be just a reminder of history but also an introduction to Zetor of the future. Come and join the events and enjoy them, you’re all welcome,” says Margaréta Víghová, Director of Corporate Communications.
Celebrations will take place in the markets where the Zetor brand operates. They begin at this year’s Zetor Tractor Show, in May in the Czech Republic and move on to Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia and other countries.
A special logo which represents Zetor’s history has been created and will appear on all tractors produced this year. A new website has also been launched, to illustrate 70 years of Zetor – www. Zetor70.com and a competition to discover the most intriguing story connected to Zetor will run on the site from April onwards. To apply you just need to send Zetor a photo along with your story.
