Magnum Trip – Red Carpet Tours of Case IH Facilities

Arrival in Chicago

Last week, Monroe Tractor Batavia employees and 20 customers traveled to Illinois and Wisconsin for red carpet tours of Case IH facilities. After flying out of Buffalo, NY Monday morning, the group landed in Chicago, IL and MT provided breakfast at Blueberry Hill Breakfast Cafe.

Tour #1: CNH Industrial

Their first stop was at the CNH Engineering facility in Burr Ridge, IL for a guided tour. Here, they were able to see many of the precise and stringent tests CNH performs to ensure high standards and longevity of their products. After the tour, the group drove to Milwaukee, WI for a quick snack at Lakefront Brewery.

Magnum Round Table

Next, the group headed to Racine, WI for a banquet sponsored by Case specifically for MT customers. They treated everyone to a prime rib dinner and drinks. Our group had the opportunity to meet with the Magnum plant manager, marketing director, high horsepower specialist, and many other CNH employees in a round table format to learn more about the equipment.

Tour #2: Racine Experience Center

After breakfast Wednesday morning, the group went to the Racine Experience Center for a facility tour. This plant is where the Case IH Magnum Series tractors are manufactured. After the tour Case provided a pulled pork lunch and had another open Q&A session with CNH employees to discuss the history of the plant and machines they produced, learn about new products, and reps were available to answer any questions or concerns.

A Special Surprise

The Case IH Autonomous Concept Vehicle returned from a trip overseas while the group was there. The engineers who built the machine were on-site so they got to see it driven around and parked in the Case Experience Center.

Overall it was a quick but action-packed trip, full of laughs and unforgettable experiences with some great people.

Thank you to our employees and customers

As we celebrate this milestone, let’s take a moment to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going. Monroe Tractor got its start in heavy equipment when founder Henry Hansen opened the original Henrietta Case Agriculture distributorship in 1951. In the late 50’s, Case began expanding its equipment lines with machines that were geared […]
