Minsk Tractor Works, or MTZ may refer to two entities: a plant in Minsk, Belarus and a plant association in Belarus.

Minsk Tractor Works is a major industrial enterprise in Minsk, Belarus. It is a part of the association "Производственное объединение 'Минский тракторный завод'" (ПО "МТЗ", PO MTZ), or Industrial Association "Minsk Tractor Works". In addition to the main plant in Minsk, the association includes a number of plants that produce parts and attachable tools for tractors and other vehicles produced by MTZ.

The plant was established on May 29, 1946. The first tractor, the MTZ-2 model, was manufactured on October 14, 1953.

As of 2005 it has nearly 20,000 workers. The plant produces over 62 models of vehicles. Its main civil production has been four-wheeled tractors of model "MTZ", known as Belarus. By 1995 the plant manufactured 3,000,000 tractors. In 1999 it produced 58% of all tractors manufactured in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). For several years the plant has been holding 8-10% share of the world market of wheeled tractors.

Since 2000 the tractors of the plant manufactured for export have been certified for the European Union. During their operation in the era of the Soviet Union, they have been awarded the collective titles of the Order of Lenin and the Order of the October Revolution.
