Vater Machinery Pty Ltd was established in 2016, by brothers, Roger and Rick Vater, who purchased an existing New Holland Dealership situated in Tanunda, within the Barossa Valley, South Australia. In 2019, the brothers acquired the Machinery Division of AW Vater & Co, founded by their parents in 1956, located at Saddleworth. It included a branch at Kadina, which was acquired in 2013. A new Dealership was built at Nuriootpa, and the Barossa business relocated to accommodate growing demand, also in that year. All three outlets, Saddleworth, Kadina and Nuriootpa have been amalgamated to form a formidable and respected business with influence throughout South Australia.
