Any French assembled tractors would be sold by MF UK as France did not sell any tractors outside France. The UK was responsible for sales in Europe/Africa/ Middle East & Australasia although I understand that has changed recently and Australia and New Zealand is part of the sales group that covers China and Asia generally, although I haven't been able to fully confirm this....John(UK)

Ireland would be sold through the UK, the USA handled its own sales. The MF25 was made in the USA as well as France with certain differences,(local content) so would the USA import French Tractors at that time, I wouldn't have thought so unless they had production shortages and then they would move them around, like they did with the TEA20, although the TO20/30 was being made in Detroit, they did send TEA's and earlier the TE20 when there was a shortage of home built tractors...John(UK)

That would sound about right, in those days to buy a tractor in N.Z. you had to have the money available in the currancy of the country that was supplying the tractor, NZ was then very closly tied to England, to get a TEA you needed sterling, also this put you in a position to get a Standard Vangaurd, or a Ford car if you brought a Fordson! To get a John Deere you needed US$ and so on. Also in those days implements had to have a certian percentage of N.Z. input, so a lot of Ferguson, I.H. and David Brown implements were made here to avoid tarriffs, or you had to buy a locally built Clough or Duncan plough, the remains of some of those old works have recently been unearthed during the wholesale demolition of central Christchurch after last years Quakes, quite interesting seeing old foundrys being exposed again, even old McCormick-Deering and Massey Harris advertising signs have been exposed. We are in the Asia/Pacific region for most manufacturers, with parts coming usually from Aussie or in the case of JCB, Singapore. If they haven"t got parts there then your off the road for 10 days! We actually find it faster to source MF parts from Canada.

That was interesting about having to have the money to buy, in the currency of the country that you were buying from. That would really P*** anyone off if they had to do that every time.
I hear that JCB are building a new Plant in Singapore. We also have unearthed some old factories and foundations like you, they are building wherever they can.What you said about MF parts, it is possibly something to do with the re-organization I told you about earlier. The guy who is in charge now was in charge or second-in command of the Europe/Africa and Middle East before, so they are going to sort out these kind of things for you. It should make life easier. There are no small dealers now over here, they are all big ones who handle millions of pounds worth, it sort of loses something now it is like that. Have a Good Weekend....John(UK)
