Here's a breakdown:

* The company resulted from a merger in **1985** between the agricultural equipment divisions of Tenneco (which owned J.I. Case) and International Harvester (IH).

However, Case IH has a rich heritage that draws on the legacies of two even older companies:

* **J.I. Case Company:** Founded in **1842** by Jerome Increase Case, known for innovative threshing machines and steam engines.

* **McCormick Harvesting Machine Company:** Established in **1847** by Cyrus McCormick, credited with the successful reaper design.

So, while Case IH itself is a relatively young brand, it carries the history of these agricultural pioneers.
