Wallem ran two dealerships -- Wallem International and Central Sands international In Illinois and Wisconsin — for 17 years, exiting the business within a couple of years of the industry-changing Case and IH merger.
If Paul’s name is familiar to you, it may be because of his book The Break-Up: What Really Happened that was published in May 2019, and is now in its 3rd printing. This story has “gone viral” on the Farm Equipment website since our editors posted initial coverage online in August 2019. You can find the historical collection online at www.farm-equipment.com/IHbreakup
If you’d like to learn more about Wallem’s personal recollections of what happened leading up to the Case IH merger, and what ensued thereafter, we’ve got another special and highly focused podcast for you -- in Paul Wallem’s own words and memories. Visit farm-equipment.com/IHpodcast
