The strategic long-term partnership will involve several areas of collaboration. Leica Geosystems will initially provide CNH Industrial’s global brands Case and New Holland Construction with machine control solutions for excavators, dozers and graders for both factory-fit and aftermarket applications.
This will eventually expand to CNH Industrial’s entire construction product line-up.
In addition, the engineering departments for both companies will jointly evaluate the development of products, designed to maximise integration and performance of the CNH industrial construction equipment portfolio.
“CNH Industrial is committed to providing its worldwide customers with leading products in the construction equipment sector which meet the highest standards in performance and productivity," said Mario Gasparri, brand president of CNH Industrial Construction Equipment.
"Our partnership with Leica Geosystems - one of the most respected companies in the machine control solutions industry - shows our intention to continue investing in the Construction Equipment business by introducing forefront technologies and leveraging the most advanced specialist players in the market,” he added.
"We are very excited about the prospect of leveraging our technological leadership positions for the benefits of our customers and the customers of CNH Industrial Construction brands Case Construction and New Holland Construction," said Leica Geosystems Machine Control Division president Johan Arnberg. "Our products will create a powerful innovative solution to meet evolving customer demands."
