In September 2010, shareholders approved a plan to split Fiat's industrial businesses from the group. Truck manufacturer Iveco, agricultural machinery and tractor manufacturer CNH Global NV and the industrial part of Fiat Powertrain Technologies were demerged into a new entity, Fiat Industrial, at the beginning of 2011. Fiat Industrial has a separate listing on the Milan stock exchange beginning January 3, 2011.
CNH is the second largest agricultural equipment manufacturer in the world after Deere & Company. It is also the third largest producer of construction equipment after Caterpillar Inc. and Komatsu. CNH accounted for around 20% of revenues (at Fiat Group). CNH was the most prized company inside Fiat because it has driven growth and is very profitable. It also shows great promise for growth in third-world markets as demand for increased agricultural output and construction fuels demand for modern machinery.
