History Edit

Chronological HistoryEdit

For Case history, see Case Corporation.
For International Harvester history, see International Harvester.

In 1842 J.I. Case founded Racine Threshing Machine Works on the strength of his innovative thresher. In 1869 Case expanded into the steam engine business. By 1886, Case was the world’s largest manufacturer of steam engines.

Case parent company Tenneco in 1974 took over the David Brown tractor company in the UK.

In 1985, Case merged with the agricultural division of International Harvester to become the second-largest farm equipment manufacturer in the world, to form Case IH, bringing together the best of both traditions to offer a full line of agricultural equipment.

In 1999 Case IH merged with New Holland Ag to form CNH Global, the new parent company of Case IH. The majority owner of CNH Global is Fiat Industrial.
