The parent company of KIOTI Tractor honours its roots while looking to the future




Celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, Daedong® Corporation – the world-class agricultural machinery leader and parent company to KIOTI Tractor – is proud to recognize this milestone alongside its staff, customers, dealers, and the global agricultural community.


Sam-Man Kim founded Daedong Corporation in 1947 with his four brothers, motivated by Korea's desperate need for agricultural mechanization during a time of famine and exhaustion in the wake of World War II. This pioneering spirit still lives on today as Daedong provides quality products that meet customer needs around the world.


In the past year alone, Daedong has introduced Korea’s first 3.8-liter diesel engine, launched their first remote-controlled and autonomous tractor series, and entered the e-mobility market.


Under the stewardship of Daedong-USA’s Chairman & CEO J.S. Kim and President & CEO Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, KIOTI Tractor has been delivering equipment across North America for 35 years with more than 60 tractor models, 12 zero-turn mowers, 5 utility vehicle models entering compact construction markets late 2022.


KIOTI completed a $13 million renovation of their North American headquarters office space in 2019 containing a state-of-the-art training facility for dealers and opened a distribution center in Mississauga, Ontario reducing shipping and delivery times to Canadian partners.


Throughout its 75 years of impact on the global agricultural industry, Daedong Corporation continues to remain committed to innovation while upholding their core value: empowering professionals and hobbyists across agriculture, turf care, construction and beyond.


Kioti Tractor is the commerce name for Daedong tractors in North America and Europe. Established in 1947, Daedong Industrial Company Ltd. in Daegu, South Korea began production of its first compact tractor in 1968. Recognizing the potential of the North American market, Daedong established Daedong-USA, Inc. and founded Kioti Tractor for sale in 1993.


Today, Kioti offers over 40 different models of tractors ranging from 22 to 110 horsepower, mowers with zero-turn capabilities, 5 UTVs and multiple compact tractor attachments for sale across the United States and Canada.


In 2004, Kioti opened its new headquarters offices in Wendell, North Carolina which houses a parts service center as well as a satisfaction center. The company has an expansive network of 350 dealers across North America that distribute their products. Kioti is continually growing to meet customer needs and remains committed to innovation as it looks ahead to its next chapter of success.
