The First Dutch Tractor Industry (ENTI) started out of a kind of idealism. The founders wanted to make a tractor that would be suitable for the Third World: a very simple and easy to operate tractor that would require very little maintenance and would not break down quickly. But when the machine was ready, it turned out that there was much more interest in it in Europe and America than in the Third World.
Quite unexpectedly, however, the ENTI turned out to be suitable for certain specialist activities in Western agriculture. There appeared to be a gap in the market where the new tractor fell exactly.
