The Toro Company


The Toro Company has a pioneering spirit. The company began as Toro Motor Co., an engine supplier for Bull Tractor Co., and survived the tumultuous years of World War I by building steam engines to support the war effort. Toro shifted gears in 1920, changing its name to Toro Manufacturing Co. and refocusing on farming equipment.

In 1921, Toro created the first mechanical golf course maintenance equipment by mounting five lawn mowers behind a Toro tractor to mow the fairways at Minikahda Country Club in Minnesota. As the company expanded further, it established a network of distributors that still exists today. These distributors enhance the professionalism and knowledge associated with the Toro brand.

Toro entered the international marketplace in 1928, shipping golf course and grounds maintenance products worldwide. Throughout the 1900s, Toro developed innovative products to serve homeowners and professionals alike, a growth that continues in the new millennium.

Toro has a vision for the future and the wisdom of the past. Since 1914 Toro has created innovative, high-quality products that are the best in the turf and landscape market. For us, success is measured not just in numbers but also by the satisfaction of our customers, the preservation and beauty of the environment, and the growth of our employees.

Toro's products are as diverse as our customers. From landscapers and golf course managers to homeowners, grounds and sports field managers and beyond, our equipment is built to satisfy the needs of our customers.

In addition, Toro also gives back to the industry and the communities it serves. Through The Toro Foundation, a portion of every Toro purchase is returned to communities and the turf industry. And The Toro Scholars Program awards scholarships to tomorrow's outdoor landscape industry leaders.

Toro's mission is to be the leading worldwide provider of outdoor landscaping products, support services and integrated systems. We also explore new opportunities that build revenue growth and sustainability using our core competencies to gain a leading market position.

Toro is a company with its eyes focused on a future of innovation and growth, yet firmly rooted in its rich heritage. Toro is its people and the commitment that each employee brings to their job. Toro knows that our company's best chance for success is to unleash the potential of our best resource - our people. It's their efforts that have built our company, and that will carry us into the next century.
