Incorporated in the late 1960s, VST Tillers Tractors was promoted as a joint venture by V T Velu and V T Krishnamoorthy with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. It is engaged in the manufacture of power tillers, tractors and diesel engines. The company came out with a rights issue in 1994 of equity shares and convertible debentures in 1995 to finance its expansion. The company proposes to introduce rice transplanters in the market. The first batch has been imported for test marketing in selected areas. This novel device mechanises the highly labour-intensive and seasonal operations of paddy transplantation. To retain market leadership, it has decided to import higher horse power and technologically advanced power tillers and introduce the same in selective markets. The company has recently ventured to introduce Combine Harvestors at an affordable price to the agricultural sector.
