Administrative History
Canadian Co-operative Implements Ltd., also known by its trade names CCIL and Co-op Implements, was founded in 1940 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, by representatives of most of the major agricultural producers' and consumers' co-ops of the Prairie provinces. In its first few years it was mainly involved in raising capital and recruiting members, and by 1944 it acquired a manufacturing plant in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Within a few years it was manufacturing a comprehensive line of farm implements, including tractors, combines, swathers, headers, balers, plows, cultivators, grain drills, and snow blowers. It also began to develop an extensive system of sales-and-service outlets called depots, and developed a sideline of trading in used farm machinery. In the 1970s it began to experience financial difficulties requiring refinancing from federal and provincial governments, co-ops, and credit unions. In 1985 it was forced to scale down the network of depots and sell the manufacturing rights to Vicon BV, a Dutch-owned multi-national farm implement manufacturer. The Co-op Implements brand name apparently continued to be used until 1990. The depot network ceased operating in the early 1990s and the Co-op was struck off the register of companies in 1997. United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd., as one of the firms that contributed capital, participated in its Advisory Committee and its Annual Meetings. Usually UFA Co-op's Treasurer acted as its liaison.
