United States lawmakers discuss current issues impacting U.S. agriculture and manufacturing sectors with CNH Industrial employees
The town hall discussions included the need for a new United States Farm Bill, along with ideas on how to address the workforce skills gap, U.S. trade, commodity prices and the impact of tariffs on the agricultural and manufacturing industries.
“CNH Industrial is honored to welcome lawmakers to our plants so that they can see, first hand, the issues facing modern manufacturing,” said Aditya Garg, Fargo Plant Manager. “We thank our legislators for taking the time to speak directly with our employees and take their perspectives to Washington.”
Then State Senator, now Congressman-elect Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) and Congressman Tom Emmer (R-MN) visited the Case IH facility in Fargo on Monday, November 5th. In addition to the town hall discussion, the Fargo visit included a plant tour.
The 86-acre Fargo facility is an integrated manufacturing facility producing 4WD tractors for Case IH and New Holland Agriculture, and wheel loaders for CASE Construction Equipment and New Holland Construction. The facility features dedicated research and development and product testing facilities and employs 600 people. Exporting worldwide, the Fargo facility manufactures the Company’s most powerful tractor ranges, including the renowned Case IH Quadtrac.
The New Holland Agriculture facility in New Holland hosted Congressman Lloyd Smucker (R-PA) on the same day.
“It was a great opportunity to bring together employees from across our New Holland campus to engage directly with our local Member of Congress and talk about what is on their minds,” said Tim Smith, New Holland Plant Manager.
The New Holland campus sits on 341 acres and employs some 1,000 people, including administrative, technical and harvesting test centers, and a plant that manufactures balers, mowers and other agricultural equipment for both New Holland Agriculture and Case IH.
CNH Industrial has 11 manufacturing plants, 12 research and development centers, and a workforce of 9,000 in North America. The Company designs, produces and sells ‘machines for work’ and is present in all major markets worldwide giving it a unique competitive position.
