Industrial Zone

A multinational manufacturer of agricultural and construction equipment, trucks, commercial vehicles and buses. Engineering machinery manufactured by the company was used for the construction of settlements and related infrastructure, settlement industrial zones and the Separation Wall. The company’s tools were also documented during house demolitions in the area of the South Hebron Hills in the occupied West Bank.

CNH EX355 excavators were used during the construction of the Israeli outpost Leshem. The same model was documented during the construction of the Separation Wall on the lands of the Palestinian villages of Bidu, Bil’in and Ni’lin and uprooting an apricot and date orchard belonging to the Palestinian village of Artas, in order to expand the infrastructure of the Efrat settlement.

Case wheel loaders were documented building an expansion of the Barkan Industrial Zone and the new Tel Aviv-Jerusalem high speed railway, which crosses the Green Line twice into the occupied Palestinian Territory. Case wheel loaders were also used during house demolitions in the Palestinian villages of Khirbet M’fakara, Susya and Bir al-‘Id in the South Hebron Hills.

In February 2017, Case heavy machinery was documented at the construction site of the Nabi Elias Bypass Road, a settler road being built near the Palestinian village of Nabi Elias in the occupied West Bank. The bypass road involves the expropriation of 25 acres of Palestinian land – including a total 700 olive trees – belonging to the Palestinian villages of Izbat Tabib, Azzun, and Nabi Elias.

CNH Industrial N.V. was incorporated in November 2012, following a merger between Fiat Industrial S.p.A. and CNH Global N.V.

Major shareholders: EXOP (44%); Harris Associates (10.14%); Fiat (4%); and BlackRock (2.9%).

The Company operates 62 production sites and 48 research and development centers worldwide.


In the field of construction equipment, CNH Industrial owns two major brands: New Holland Construction and Case Construction. Until 2012, Fiat Kobelco was one of the brand names included under the CNH portfolio, but its distribution ended following the termination of the global alliance between Kobelco and CNH.

Additional brand names under CNH Industrial include Steyr, Case IH, Magirus, FPT and Iveco.


Since the year 2000, N. Feldman and Son was the exclusive Israeli importer of CNH and Case products in the fields of construction and agriculture. Following changes in CNH distribution channels, the New Holland and Case agricultural machinery remained in the hands of N. Feldman and Son, while the distribution of construction equipment was transferred to Carasso Motors, a major Israeli importer of vehicles.
