Behind the scenes of “Zedelgem”

Share this item


Founded in 1906, the New Holland Harvesting Center of Excellence produces CX and CR combine harvesters. It is also the birthplace of Europe’s first self-propelled combine harvester.

CNH recently announced the latest developments for the site, a €150 million five-year investment plan to expand both research & development and production capabilities. This plan focuses on further enhancement and production of the new CR11, New Holland’s next generation flagship combine harvester. This machine uses advanced artificial intelligence technologies to deliver high productivity and yield. Real-time machine learning, automated predictive adjustments, intelligent fuel management, and unique sensors to assess crop nutrient composition are just a few of its features.

Automation to drive productivity is at the heart of the CR11 combine, and this principle holds true for its production as well. The assembly and logistics area will be completely redesigned using lean principles. Automated guided vehicles will move the combines through the assembly line, creating a safer, more efficient, and more flexible process. The combines will be comprehensively tested and inspected in the four new inline test stations, ensuring highest build quality.
