CNH Plant Reopens After Five-Week Closure

The Case New Holland combine plant in Grand Island, Neb., has reopened with new safety measures in place, more than a month after a voluntary shutdown.

The plant suspended operations April 7 and announced it planned to monitor COVID-19 developments on a week-to-week basis.

Plant Manager Mike Schaefer said this: “As employee safety and health remain a top priority, we were able to implement additional safety measures as well as resolve many supply chain opportunities during the down time.

We appreciate the flexibility of our customers, suppliers and employees, and look forward to recovering our original schedule as quickly as possible.”

At the time the plant suspended operations, COVID-19 cases were beginning to rise dramatically in Grand Island. Health department and hospital officials have said numbers are currently declining.
