Long Description:
CS:
Zetor (oficiálne od 1. ledna 2007 Zetor Tractors a. s.) je zkrácený název moravského výrobce traktoru, sídlícího v brnenské mestské cásti Brno-Líšen nedaleko Stránské skály. Od 29. cervna 2002 je jediným akcionárem slovenský HTC Holding, a. s. Podnik vyrábí traktory znacky Zetor. První budovy Zetoru zde vznikly v období druhé svetové války tak ríkajíc „na zelené louce“. V té dobe se továrna nazývala „Flugmotorenwerke Ostmark GmbH Wien, Zweigwerk“, a vyrábely se zde letecké motory pro potreby nacistického Nemecka. Po válce se jednalo o soucást Zbrojovky Brno. Název Zetor, jímž tehdy státní podnik zacal oznacovat svoje traktory, vznikl spojením Zet (hláskované písmeno „Z“ z názvu Zbrojovky) a koncovky -or ze slova traktor (nebo z názvu ZEmedelský trakTOR).

EN:
Zetor is a tractor manufacturing industry from the Czech Republic, until 1990 a subsidiary of Zbrojovka in Brno. The name itself arose from merging "Zet" from the logo of Zbrojovka and the last two letters of the word tractor. Zetor has pioneered various innovations throughout its history. It was among the first tractor companies to produce fully integrated safety cabs with insulated, rubber-mounted suspension. While Zetor is a Czech company, versions of its tractors are assembled in numerous countries including Argentina, Burma, India, Iraq, Uruguay and Zaire.
