London, December 7, 2018
CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI) announces that its manufacturing site in Córdoba,
Argentina has achieved Bronze level certification in the World Class Manufacturing (WCM)
Córdoba is one of CNH Industrial’s global, multi-branded manufacturing plants. IVECO trucks,
FPT Industrial engines, Case IH and New Holland Agriculture machinery as well as CASE
Construction Equipment vehicles are all produced at this location.
The Case IH Farmall and Puma tractor ranges are manufactured here in addition to the Axial
Flow 130 and Extreme 230 combine harvester series while the New Holland Agriculture
facility produces the T6, T7 and TD tractor line-up together with the renowned CR combine
harvester range. In addition, an array of IVECO truck models are made at the plant including
the Stralis, Trakker, Tector, Cursor and Hi Way while FPT Industrial’s production facility is
dedicated to the manufacture of the Cursor and NEF engine ranges. In total, the plant extends
over an area of 420,000 square meters and employs some 800 people in manufacturing.
WCM is one of the global manufacturing industry’s highest standards for the integrated
management of manufacturing plants and processes. It is a pillar-structured system based
on continuous improvement, designed to eliminate waste and loss from the production
process by identifying objectives such as zero injuries, zero defects, zero breakdowns and
zero waste. To certify improvements, a system of periodic third-party audits evaluates all of
the WCM pillars, forming an overall score for each plant that is the basis for three achievement
levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
The Córdoba plant made significant improvements in the areas of Autonomous
Maintenance/Work Place Organization, Clarity of Objectives and Route Map to WCM leading
to its Bronze Level designation, thanks to the workforce’s commitment and professionalism.
