Through humble beginnings, New Holland began as a hay and forage component company. It was purchased in 1947 by the Sperry Corporation where it continued to grow as a manufacturer of farm equipment. In 1986, Ford purchased Sperry-New Holland and the company continued to make farm tractors and attachments. Those old blue Ford tractors would become New Holland in 1991 when Ford sold its farming business to Fiat and the Ford farming brand became Case – New Holland.
