The history of the New Holland company begins in 1895 in the town of New Holland in the American state of Pennsylvania with a small repair shop, in which one person worked. Later, in 1903, the production was reorganized. The company was renamed New Holland Machine Company and began to engage in the production, rather than repair of agricultural machinery.
Currently, New Holland is a fuiliner - it produces a full line of construction equipment, which includes 71 basic models: these are New Holland tracked and wheeled excavators, bulldozers and motor graders, front loaders, skid steer loaders, backhoe loaders.
In 1966, the first New Holland backhoe loader was produced.
In 1974, Allis-Chalmers and FIAT form the Fiat-Allis joint venture. Already in 1985, FIAT buys out Fiat-Allis and gives the company the name Fiatallis.
In 1987 FIAT and Hitachi in the Italian city of San Mauro begin the joint production of tracked and wheeled excavators. Cooperation with a Japanese company lasted until 2001.
In 1991 FIAT S.p.a. acquires New Holland from Ford Corporation. The companies were able to complement each other in terms of geographic coverage of the market and manufactured products.
In 1998, Orenstein & Koppel (O&K) joined the corporation, providing CNH with proven technology for New Holland graders and wheel excavators.
In 1999 Case and New Holland merge to form the CNH (Case New Holland) concern.
2002 saw the merger of New Holland and Kobelko. In the future, it is this company’s technology that will be used to produce New Holland wheel loaders, bulldozers, graders and tracked excavators in the combined CNH product range. But initially, the products of the alliance were produced under the FIAT-Kobelco brand.
And on January 29, 2005, CNH corporation radically changes its structure and unites five regional brands: New Holland Construction, Kobelko, FIAT-Kobelco, Fiatallis and O&K into a single global brand New Holland.
In 2008, the New Holland E215B Crawler Excavator was released, equipped with a green engine that was below emission standards.
New Holland's factories are located in Fargo, Wichita, Burlington and Calhoun (USA), Lezza, San Mauro and Imola (Italy), Contahem (Brazil), Berlin (Germany). CNH has a network of 11,400 dealers in more than 160 countries around the world. The headquarters are located in Turin, Italy.
