The Case Corporation was a manufacturer of construction and agricultural equipment founded by Jerome I. Case in 1844.
Born to a farming family in 1819 Case reportedly became interested in
farm equipment as a child when he learned about a new hand-powered
machine that could cut wheat. Later in 1842 Case moved to Wisconsin,
improved upon early threshing machines and founded The J. I. Case
Threshing Machine Company in 1844. Three of his top employees later
became partners in the company.
Case constructed a portable steam engine in 1869 to power his wheat
threshers. The engine now lives in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington,
DC. Case later won first place at the 1878 Paris Exposition for one of
his powered wheat threshers and around the same time created his first
self-propelled tractor or "traction engine."

company and the most prolific engine manufacturer in North America.

County Land Company" in 1964. In turn Kern County sold Case to the
Tenneco Company of Texas. The new parent company Tenneco also purchased
