“I am honored to be the keynote speaker at ASABE’s Annual Meeting,” said Mr Marchionne. “As an employer to thousands of engineers and an industry-leader in the agriculture industry, we see a clear duty in dedicating the skills and talents of CNH Industrial to meet the current and future needs of farmers. Our company strives to create high-performing agricultural equipment and systems as well as create sustainability initiatives that help increase the global food supply.”
Earlier in 2014, ASABE recognized CNH Industrial’s agricultural brands, Case IH and New Holland Agriculture, among the top 50 most innovative products in their annual AE50 list. The only awards program of its kind to celebrate product innovations in the areas of agricultural, food, and biological systems, winners are decided by an expert panel of engineers which selects up to 50 products for recognition. The products were judged on innovation, significant engineering advancement, and impact on the market served.
Nine of the company’s products made the list. These included six New Holland Agriculture products (the Roll-Belt(TM) 560 round baler; Discbine(R) center-pivot disc mower-conditioners; Speedrower(R) self-propelled windrowers; Opti-Speed(TM) variable strawwalker speed technology for CX Series combines; SmartTrax(TM) system with Terraglide(TM) suspension for CR Series combines; ECOBlue(TM) HI-eSCR exhaust gas after-treatment system) and three Case IH products (the 4412 folding corn head; the Axial-Flow(R) 230 series combines; and the Steiger Rowtrac(TM) tractor).
