Winnipeg-based tractor manufacturer Buhler Industries saw record sales for the second consecutive year.
Revenues for the year ending September 30th reached $361 million, up almost 28 percent from the previous year.
Net earnings for the year came in at a record $16.4 million, up from $11.9 million the previous year.
The company attributes the profits to increased demand for Versatile tractors, as well as spraying, seeding and tillage equipment.
Looking forward, Buhler expects sales to increase in 2013, with some additional sales coming from the newly introduced combines and grain carts.
