Case New Holland

CNH is the fruit of the innovation and commitment of 1,100 employees who strive every day to consolidate leadership in the Mexican agricultural and construction machinery market.

It emerged in 1981, where the association of the Mexican Government through Nacional Financiera and Ford Motor Company established the company "Fabrica de Tractores Agricolas, S.A. de C.V." with a 60-40 shareholding.

Today CNH de Mexico is a 50-50 joint venture of Grupo Quimmco and CNH Global, N.V. (subsidiary of the FIAT Group). The company is the main supplier of agricultural tractors in Mexico, where six out of every ten tractors are from our brands. CNH de Mexico manufactures, assembles, markets and distributes agricultural tractors, forage equipment and spare parts for the agricultural sector. Likewise, it is a marketer of all New Holland and Case brand construction machinery.

CNH de Mexico, S.A. de C.V., is located in the city of Santiago de Queretaro, where we manufacture New Holland and Case IH brand agricultural tractors, ranging from 45 to 140 horsepower. We import equipment from 145 to 450 horsepower and construction machinery such as mini loaders, retro excavators, front loaders, bulldozers, motorcycle shapers and excavators. CNH is established as the giant of Agricultural and Construction Machinery.
