The Deutz-Allis company and name was created when Deutz-Fahr of Germany purchased the Allis-Chalmers Company of Milwaukee, WI, USA in 1985. Deutz-Fahr was owned by Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz (KHD) at that time. KHD and Deutz-Allis struggled financially, and sold the Deutz-Allis company to some of the management in 1990, which formed the Gleaner-Allis Corporation to buy it. The corporate name was soon changed to Allis Gleaner Corporation, or AGCO, in 1990.

Deutz-Allis tractors and equipment were renamed in North America to be AGCO-Allis, but continued in South America until 2001, when the South American operations were renamed AGCO-Allis. In North America, Deutz-Allis tractors carried both the traditional Deutz-green color, and Allis-orange color. In South America, Deutz-Allis continued to be owned by Deutz-Fahr until AGCO purchased it, too, in 1996. The Deutz-Allis brand lived on until 2001, when it too was replaced with AGCO-Allis.
