The New Holland haytools plant traces its roots to 1895 when a two-man machinery repair shop was founded by master machinist and inventor, Abe Zimmerman. Through the years, New Holland became known as the leader in hay and forage technology, pioneering many firsts following the purchase of Lancaster County farmer Ed Nolt’s invention of the first commercially viable automatic self-tie baler in 1940.
Nolt’s automatic self-tie baler revolutionized haymaking and put New Holland on the map. Today, the New Holland plant produces 30 different models of round balers, square balers, pull-type forage harvesters and other haytools exported to 45 countries around the world
