Case Construction Equipment hosted more than 800 employees at its headquarters in Racine, Wis. The company was founded in 1842 as the Racine Threshing Machine Works Co. in Rochester, Wis.
U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who represents Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district; Richard Tobin, CEOfficer, CNH Industrial; and Kaleb Jerome Case, the great grandson of company founder Jerome Increase (J.I.) Case, spoke at the event.
Tobin told attendees: “Not every company gets to celebrate 175 years, and it’s worth taking a moment to recognize that this is a company with significant history and deep roots. To our people in the audience, and our colleagues all around Racine and beyond, I want to say thank you for doing your part to continue this momentum.”
