Following plant closings and production decreases due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CNH Industrial now says more than two-thirds of its production sites worldwide are operational. It expects “the vast majority” to be running by month’s end, with full operation at most sites expected, although alterations may be required due to changes concerning the virus or impacts on market conditions and supply chains. CNH Industrial owns the Case IH, Case Construction, FPT, IVECO, New Holland Agriculture, and New Holland Construction brands.
Europe, North America & Beyond
CNH Industrial has 67 plants overall. Already, 75% in Europe and 60% in North America, South America, and the rest of the world are operational. CNH Industrial is giving its agricultural and powertrain manufacturing greater priority, followed by commercial and specialty vehicle production and then construction equipment. Separately, IVECO says it’s resuming production at plants in Italy and Spain it closed in March. The company’s plant in Suzzara, Italy, opened May 4, while plants in Brescia, Italy, and Madrid and Valladolid in Spain will resume May 11.
