Prodist Mechanisation, formely known as Agri-Onderdele, was founded in 1986 as a supplier of second hand Massey Ferguson parts to the South African farming industry, trading as Safari Onderdele.
Soon thereafter, Prodist Mechanisation started sourcing alternative parts for Massey Ferguson tractors from various overseas suppliers.
As the ranges of these suppliers expanded into Ford tractors, the same parts also became part of the business' range.
Due to the huge potential to grow market share for these parts that existed at the time, the business established themselves very quickly as one of the leading suppliers of alternative parts in South Africa.
In 2003 the company became a 100% subsidiary of AFGRI.
Today Prodist Mechanisation is part of Agrinet.
