CNH Industrial has acquired Specialty Enterprises LLC, North America’s largest manufacturer of premium aluminum spray booms for agricultural applications.
Specialty operates a manufacturing facility in Wautoma, Wisconsin, and has been a supplier to Case IH since 2020.
The direct ownership of spray boom production is the latest step in Case IH’s strategic road map for its sprayer product platform.
As the company continues to enhance its application-product offering, the inclusion of longer, lighter aluminium booms has allowed it to speed its development and deployment of new technologies. These solutions will be implemented across the Case IH product portfolio.
“We are thrilled to be working so closely with Specialty, which has been a fantastic partner to Case IH over the last few years as we deliver more productive application solutions,” stated Scott Harris, Global President with Case IH. “This acquisition strengthens our in-house capabilities and allows us to retain key strategic personnel to ensure continuity in this vertical integration.”
The acquisition is part of Case IH’s continued commitment to Agronomic Design— helping operators maximize yield and ROI (return-on-investment) potential.
The aluminum spray booms, such as those manufactured by Specialty, are up to 50 percent lighter than its steel counterparts, providing less compaction and rutting, but better weight distribution.
“At Case IH, one of our primary crop production goals is to help operators cover more acres more efficiently—with solutions that are built to last,” added Monte Weller, Case IH’s Global Product Manager for Crop Production and Hay & Forage product lines. “This acquisition will be key to providing operators with the equipment and agronomic solutions they need to feed a growing world.”
Specialty is known within the ad world for advanced engineering and high-quality workmanship as a world-class welding operation. Its sprayer boom design uses multiple patents to virtually eliminate the fatigue cracking associated with other aluminum boom designs. The aluminum used by Specialty is sourced and extruded in the US.
