TYM USA, Branson Tractors merge, Georgia becomes NA headquarters

TYM USA and Branson Tractors have officially merged and rebranded as TYM North America. The merger, which went into effect in January, has resulted in the launch of a revamped tractor lineup.

TYM Corporation, the parent company of TYM North America, will be constructing and expanding upon a new headquarters facility located in Rome, Georgia. The $20 million, 142,500-square-foot project will include an expansion of the site’s current assembly lines, parts warehouse and the addition of a TYM Technology Institute (TTI) for service education.

The company also plans to increase its annual tractor production capacity – from 30,000 to 50,000 units by accelerating its operations in its North American plants. This will be made possible by the company’s plans to increase parts and supply to more than 300 dealerships in North America, reports TYM.

As OPE Business reported in May 2022, TYM announced plans to invest more than $20 million into manufacturing facilities in Georgia, by joining forces with its North American subsidiaries, TYM-USA and Branson.

“Serving as the distribution arm of the firm, TYM North America aims to generate $1 billion (USD) in revenue within three years and rise to become one of the top companies in the agricultural industry,” the company states. “By combining both TYM USA’s and Branson Tractor’s product offerings, TYM North America now offers dealers some of the best customizable tractor models on the market.”

Dohoon Kim, CEO of TYM Corporation notes: “The same high-quality products formerly produced by Branson Tractors and TYM USA aren’t going anywhere. We still know what makes a TYM Tractor an elite tool for our customer base, and the same can be said for the leadership team behind Branson Tractors. With this merger, we are only going to be improving upon two already-successful product lineups.”

In commemorating the merger, TYM held its 2023 National Dealer Meeting in Orlando, Florida, in January with 200 dealers in the U.S. and Canada. At the event, dubbed “2023 TYM New Generation,” TYM shared its integrated brand message: “Together as one.”

During the meeting, TYM introduced a tractor lineup with enhanced performance to meet the needs of customers in the North American market. New 75-, 115- and 130-horsepower tractors, scheduled to be released in 2023, were unveiled at the event, in addition to the company’s full lineup of tractors and tractor attachments. The newly expanded TYM lineup now includes numerous 20-130 horsepower tractors and a wide range of products in the low and high horsepower tiers.

At its National Dealer Meeting in Orlando, TYM introduced a tractor lineup with enhanced performance to meet the needs of customers in the North American market.

In addition, TYM announced that it has signed a new original design manufacturer (ODM) agreement with Yanmar America. Under the agreement, TYM will begin delivering new 37-hp sub-compact and 74-hp compact tractors to Yanmar America in 2023. TYM will also add the new tractors to its own product lineup. Furthermore, the two companies plan to review future joint opportunities to diversify and expand their product lineups.

The ODM contract with a globally recognized partner will give momentum to TYM’s continuing expansion in the North American market, reports the company.

“The signing of an ODM agreement with Yanmar America confirms the demand for TYM’s technology and products by global companies and in the North American market,” states TYM. “With the new ODM agreement, TYM will strengthen our bonds with Yanmar America and Yanmar Holdings for mutual benefit.”

  1. When will you get a dealer closer to Augusta, Ga.?
    If I need service I would have to make a 2-1/2 hour drive one way.
