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 Case International.
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.
