Like agriculture, MX has changed a great deal over the years. When Louis Mailleux took on the family forge in 1951, he could not have imagined that the business would develop into a sizeable industry to become one of the main players in its market, capable of fitting out over 5000 models of tractors.
With subsidiaries in Germany and the United Kingdom, we now sell front loaders and front linkages, as well as a wide range of implements in a number of countries across the world: in Europe, of course, Japan, Oceania, South America, Africa and the Middle East.
Quicke's founder, Karl-Ragnar Åström, was a clever entrepreneur who grew tired of handling hay and manure by hand.
So he started looking for solutions that would improve his productivity and the solution he came up with was to build Sweden's first front loader. This ultimately led to Quicke, the world’s first drive-in front loader, a few years later and the rest is history.
