Although Versatile Manufacturing Ltd. of Canada was not officially incorporated until 1963, the name ‘Versatile’ first appeared on the side of the grain augers and sprayers that Peter Pakosh and Roy Robinson sold in 1947.

By 1964, Versatile was the first company in the world to mass-produce four-wheel drive tractors.  The first models released were the D100 and G100 in 1964.  The D118, G125 and D145 models followed a year later.
