Why are people talking about Kubota? It's not in fs so it does not count
Great Plains is owned by Kubota. However, the question has been answered multiple times in this thread. JD is the biggest company in FS by a large margin in almost every measurable way; product line, sales figures, dealer network, brand recognition, etc...

So... John Deere wins. John Deere is the greatest Haha jk. Personally it is my favorite because that's what we have, but everyone has their favorites and that's ok too. Our baler is a new Holland and our forage H&s wagons we got through the local case store.

the biggest company in FS is CNH Industrial N.V. by way of being owned by Exor N.V.

I.e. CNH Industrial N.V. is just one of their wings, and CNH Industrial itself covers a diverse range of products covering the industrial side of things, while Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. covers the light automotive side of things.

the revenue of CNH Industrial N.V. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. combined is over >$100 billion in 2018, with Exor N.V. revenue totalling $175 billion in 2018.

now if people are going to argue to limit things just to farm equipment, then it becomes much more complex as both Deere and Co and CNH Industrial N.V. (thus Exor N.V.) have arms that are not implicitly farm equipment related, like their construction equipment arms, power systems (engine) arms, lawn and ground care and other segments, truck and bus arms etc etc that have nothing to do with farming per se.


as for the absolute largest company that has something in FS19, then that would be MAN Truck & Bus AG, by way of being owned by MAN SE, which itself is owned by Volkswagen AG, which has revenue of $278 billion in 2018

whereas the largest company that has nothing in FS19 directly but has an implied presents due to them making a significant subcomponent of the IRL machines that are depicted in FS19, would be Mercedes-Benz whose power systems arm make the engines fitted in some tractors and forage harvesters etc (As dose MAN SE above), with Mercedes-Benz being owned by Daimler AG which has revenue of $197 billion in 2018.


the above is why Deere and Co label itself very specifically as the worlds largest manufacture of farm equipment, because many of the others are more diverse in what they produce and have much more complex ownership, as they got so large they had to be divested or demerged into smaller entreaty to streamline their running and make them and so their boards of directors can have more pertinent knowledge relating to the industry sector they are overseeing.

Do you guys know the most interesting firms in the sensor technology industry is Pepperl+Fuchs? You can see their production here A sensor is a key electronic part, segment, or element whose design is to identify instances or fluctuations in its condition and transfer the data to different devices, as often as possible a PC processor.

When I first read the title of this thread, I thought they were asking which company had the most equipment in the game, which I think would be AGCO, right?

Being as they own Challenger, Fendt, MF and Valtra.

Agco has the most brands, but it depends how much of each brand inside Agco there is. CNH (Case, New Holland, Steyr) has about 34 things ingame if I counted right.
