New Holland North America Celebrates Supports the Next Generation of Agricultural Leaders in its 125th Anniversary Year
The New Holland brand was founded in a small Pennsylvania town of the same name in 1895. From its inception, New Holland has valued innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit that seeks to solve the problems of tomorrow, today. For that reason, New Holland North America chose 2020, the brand’s 125th anniversary, to make an additional show of support for the National FFA Organization by donating over $47,000 as a general contribution.
“As a proud supporter of FFA for over 75 years, New Holland is happy to celebrate our brand’s rich history alongside FFA,” said Brett Davis, Vice President for New Holland North America. “We look forward to another 125 years of making a positive impact in the agriculture industry, especially by developing FFA members’ potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.”
New Holland, a global agricultural brand of CNH Industrial N.V., plans to make a presentation during the 2020 National FFA Convention & Expo this fall and will continue to support local state associations and chapters through the CNH Industrial FFA Alumni and Supporters Affiliate Chapter. CNH Industrial America is a Silver Sponsor of the National FFA Foundation. Currently, there are over 700,000 FFA members (students aged 12-21) across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
“We are grateful for the longtime support from New Holland and appreciate the additional gift for 2020,” said Molly Ball, National FFA Foundation president and chief marketing officer. “Their commitment means that more FFA members will have the opportunity to become the next generation of leaders who will change the world.”
