CNH Industrial has acquired Specialty Enterprises LLC, North America’s largest manufacturer of aluminium spray booms for agricultural applications. Specialty, which operates one manufacturing facility in Wautoma, Wisconsin, has been a supplier to Case IH since 2020.
CNH says the direct ownership of spray boom production is the latest step in their strategic road map for its sprayer product platform. As the company works to enhance its application-product offering, the inclusion of longer, lighter booms enables accelerated development and deployment of new technologies. These solutions will be implemented across the Case IH product portfolio.
Specialty is known for its advanced engineering and high-quality workmanship as a world-class welding operation. The company’s sprayer boom design incorporates multiple patents to virtually eliminate the fatigue cracking associated with other aluminium boom designs. The aluminium used by Specialty is sourced and extruded in the United States.
