The J.I. Case
Corporation was founded by Jerome Increase Case in 1847. The
company built threshers. Case began manufacturing steam engines
in 1869 and introduced its first steam traction engine in 1878.
The company was well known for producing steam tractors.
In 1964 Tenneco, a large Oil and Energy company, purchased J.I.
Case. In 1972 Case became the big tractor power specialist
company when it began only producing tractors on the agricultural
side of its operations. Case became well known for its Traction
King 4wds and high horse power row crop tractors.
In 1985 J.I. Case became a full line company again when its
parent company merged it with International Harvester to form
The Case IH brand represents a tradition of leadership. It
is the culmination of agricultural equipment companies and
brands, including Case, International Harvester, Steiger and
David Brown, to name just a few.
