Specialty, which operates one manufacturing facility in Wautoma, Wisconsin, has been a supplier to Case IH since 2020.

The direct ownership of spray boom production is the latest step in Case IH's strategic road map for its sprayer product platform. Case IH says it is working to enhance its application product offering, with the inclusion of longer, lighter booms to enable accelerated development and deployment of new technologies.

"We are thrilled to be working so closely with Specialty, which has been a fantastic partner to Case IH over the last few years as we deliver more productive application solutions," said Scott Harris, Case IH global president.

"This acquisition strengthens our in-house capabilities and allows us to retain key strategic personnel to ensure continuity in this vertical integration."

Case IH says Specialty is known for its advanced engineering and high-quality workmanship as a world-class welding operation.

The company's sprayer boom design incorporates multiple patents to virtually eliminate potential fatigue cracking associated with other aluminium boom designs. The aluminium used by Specialty is sourced and extruded in the United States.
