History

Case IH history began when, in 1842, Jerome Increase Case founded Racine Threshing Machine Works on the strength of his innovative thresher. In 1869 Case expanded into the steam engine business and, by 1886, Case was the world’s largest manufacturer of steam engines. A century later, Case merged with the agricultural division of International Harvester in 1985 to become the second-largest farm equipment manufacturer to form Case IH, bringing together the best of both traditions to offer a full line of agricultural equipment.

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