On the grounds of economic  co-operation between Iran and Romania an agreement was reached in 1966 to  establish a tractor manufacturing company in the country. Within this framework  Iran Tractor Manufacturing Company (ITMCO) was created in 1968. The company is  located in the outskirts of the industrial city of Tabriz in north-west Iran.  The initial objective of the company was to manufacture 10,000 units tractors of  45-65 horsepower engines with single and double differential gearboxes. After eight years of production there was a  re-evaluation of the local market requirements and consequently Massey Ferguson  of the UK began assembling in 1976 with up-to-date technology and a higher total  production capacity rate of 13,000 units per annum. In this scenario it had been  decided that a significant number of parts used in assembly should be produced  in Iran either by ITMCO itself or its associated organizations​
