Buhler Industries, a Canadian-owned farm equipment manufacturer, purchased the Winnipeg four-wheel drive plant from New Holland and in 2001 the Versatile brand returned as Buhler Versatile. Buhler continued to build the Genesis tractors for New Holland until about 2004. Buhler Versatile continued to build the 2000 Series four-wheel drive (240 to 425 horsepower) and launched the High Horsepower Tractor Series in 2004. With 435, 485 and 535 horsepower it was the highest-horsepower four-wheel drive available in North America at that time.[citation (source) needed] It has since increased with the 575 horsepower model.

Buhler built the Genesis tractors for Landini as the Starland series from around 2003 to about 2004.

Buhler celebrated 40 Years of Versatile tractor production in 2006 and commemorated 50,000 Versatile-Built four-wheel drives in late 2007. At the same time, Combine Factory Rostselmash Ltd., a Russian combine manufacturer, purchased 80% of the common shares in Buhler Industries with plans of increasing the global presence of Buhler Versatile four-wheel drive tractors. The Versatile name continues, known worldwide for reliability, durability and ease of service and maintenance.[citation (source) needed] In 2009, the Buhler name was dropped on the tractors, and they returned to just the Versatile name.
