10 Sep 2023

imageCase IH celebrated an important milestone in Nebraska this month, marking 50 years of operations at its Grand Island plant during an event on Saturday, July 25. Today the plant produces Case IH Axial-Flow combines equipped with the industry’s largest grain tanks, engines, and fuel tanks to match.

“Our brand is very proud of Grand Island’s accomplishments and their specialized expertise in world-class combine manufacturing which they have developed over the last half century,” said Eric Shuman, Case IH Sr. Director for Harvesting. ​Case IH Axial-Flow combine manufacturing started in Grand Island with the introduction of the AFX8010 series in 2003. The following year manufacturing of the 2388 Axial-Flow combine series relocated from East Moline, Ill. to Grand Island.
