WELCOME TO BUISARD, FRENCH CONCEPTOR AND DESIGNER
Max Buisard, a harness-maker by trade, established his first business as a craftsman in 1941. He performed various types of leather work and,
notably, made horse collars that allowed farmers to pull
their plows across the field.
Horses were gradually replaced by basic tractors without
cabs, which gave him the idea to develop the first “shelters” in
very basic canvas, still using his foundations in sewing.
The first “Buisard cabs” were born.
The first sheet metal farm tractor cab was manufactured in 1959. From 1959 to 1995, 400,000 sheet-metal cabs were sold throughout Europe.
The roll bar appeared in the 1960’s. BUISARD organized demonstrations of roll-overs with professional stunt men, in order to raise the awareness of users for their safety. Legislation introduced in 1976 made roll bars mandatory.
Max BUISARD received the Gold Medal from the French Agricultural Academy in 1992 for his innovations and creations in the field of safety and comfort.
In 2022, we opened up to the international market.
By forming a strategic alliance with the Finnish group Fortaco, Buisard has taken on a new dimension and is looking toward the future.
We now have three cab factories (in France, Finland and Slovakia) which allow us to better meet market demands by offering more flexibility, production capacity and an international dimension to our customers.
Daily production of 120 to 125 cabs welded on our site as well as additional units produced by our supplier partners for up to 135 cabs per day.
Two robotic welding lines, K07 and Flexicab.
Our AMBITION 2026 company plan to continue growth while improving overall performance and worfklows because our strategy is based on our desire to continue our development in Industrial Excellence.
With our teams and organization, we are ensuring we have the resources to take on the company project AMBITION 2026, which will take us right into our 85th anniversary celebration.
