CNH Industrial today announced its agreement to acquire the Australian agricultural implement manufacturer K-Line Ag. This acquisition will add tillage and residue management equipment (like the K-Line Speedtiller Powerflex, shown in action here) and will enhance the crop production portfolios of Case IH and New Holland Agriculture.
K-Line Ag, a pioneering leader and innovator in the agricultural implement business in Australia, founded in 1993, is headquartered in Cowra, New South Wales, Australia, and expanded into North America in 2013. K-Line products will be available in Case IH dealerships in North America and through the Case IH, New Holland, and K-Line networks in Australia and New Zealand.
Shortly following this announcement, CNHI also announced their acquisition of ATI Tracks Systems.
