CNH Industrial hosted U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa at the Case manufacturing facility in Burlington, Iowa, on May 29. The visit included a tour of the plant and a roundtable discussion with employees to address the latest developments in the U.S. agricultural and manufacturing industries.

"Iowa is a leader in agriculture. The agricultural and manufacturing products produced here help feed and fuel the world," Grassley said. "CNH Industrial's Burlington plant is a significant contributor to Iowa's leadership in this space through its production of industry-leading technology. I appreciated the opportunity to tour CNH Industrial and have a question-and-answer session with their employees."

The plant manufactures tractor loaders, backhoes, rough-terrain forklifts and crawler dozers for the Case brand, a global construction equipment brand of CNH Industrial, as well as headers for the Case IH and New Holland Agriculture brands, global agricultural brands of CNH Industrial. The site also features a Research and Development Center that focuses on innovations in these product categories.

Josh Welliver, Case plant manager, led the facility tour and roundtable discussion.

"It was a great pleasure to host Senator Grassley. He is true advocate for manufacturing and agriculture. We were able to discuss some of the most pressing industry topics, such as the need for the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement [USMCA], the negative impacts of tariffs, and the importance of continued and increased investment in our nation's infrastructure. We also had the chance to thank the Senator for his leadership and efforts to have the steel and aluminum tariffs lifted on Canada and Mexico."

The Burlington plant, which is locally known as the "Backhoe Capital of the World", currently employs more than 600 employees, and has been producing equipment for CNH Industrial brands since 1937.

CNH Industrial has 11 manufacturing plants, 12 research and development centers, and a workforce of 9,000 in North America.
