LEBANON, Ind. — Expansion is an important step for a
company’s growth, which is why Case New Holland Industrial has been working over
a 10-year period to add a special processing center to its campus in
Keith Shadrick, the senior director of distribution services
for Case New Holland Industrial, said the new center allows the company to
expand its capabilities as well as its footprint on the agriculture
“Our vision at CNH Industrial is to have the highest level
of service and parts available,” he said, adding that the addition of the new
specialty center will not only offer customers the highest level of quality
parts, but also allows the company to ship direct items more efficiently.
The company’s expansion project, Shadrick said, helped
enhance what CHN Industrial does and can offer for its customers, including
specialized processes such as kitting, paint and refurbishment station, ship
direct cross dock and export operations and command control center.
A big opportunity that CNH Industrial is looking forward to
with the opening of the new center is being able to prepare kits for customers,
which is a pre-made package with all the supplies a farmer needs to repair
equipment, without having to outsource the job to a third party.
With the new kitting area in the special processing center,
he said the company has the speed and the convenience, as well as the ability to
prepare kits on demand, as long as it has the right supplies.
In the future, Shadrick said that CHN Industrial will be
adding hay and forage kits.
Scott Harris, vice president of parts and service for CNH
Industrial North America, said the company is both excited and proud of the new
facility, and the fact that it will be able to offer dealers and equipment
owners in North America exceptional parts variety.
Besides bringing a lot of specialty processes to the Lebanon
campus with the new center, Shadrick said, the new building also created 100 new
jobs, which will be filled with people from the community.
