Celebrating an anniversary is important in the life of a company, and for 2015 New Holland is taking the year to mark its 120th birthday. It's a grand time, as the company looks back on a history of innovation, the first successful bale knotter, the first discbine, the first self-propelled windrower, and the first rotary combine. All are significant milestones for the firm, and for agriculture, but as part of a major media event the company is already setting its sights on the future.
During its annual product rollout, New Holland executives highlighted a range of new products from a new machine that fills a gap between the T7 and T8 to a revamped forage harvester line with new engine power. Or there's the mid-range TS6 machines that offer livestock producers and smaller operations the power they need to get the job done.
There was even industrial equipment too from a tractor-loader-backhoe to an upgraded skid-steer loader line.

Many of the enhancements and new products are being driven by the company's move to update the emission systems on all its machines.
This gallery offers you a look at a range of products, but we start with a dip back to the past where we remember Abe Zimmerman, the man who started New Holland, but how innovation gave the company the power to grow into a global powerhouse. Along the way there were some acquisitions - and in fact New Holland was even acquired - twice.
The company even has a new Vice President for the brand in North America, who just came into the role two weeks ago, but is already embracing the challenges ahead. Of course, he's taking on a firm that is pushing its engineers to find new ways to solve problems and meet customers' needs.
