KMITL was founded in 1960 and today is one of the most recognised research and educational institutions in Thailand. The New Holland TT55 tractor will contribute to the training and preparation of some100 students and engineers in the agricultural and industrial machinery sectors every year. New Holland will also provide students with training materials and servicing support.

The TT55 is a general-purpose tractor, capable of meeting a wide range of demands and providing great value to farmers. Simple, reliable and affordable, it has been proving to be the perfect partner for small farms across Thailand, yet robust enough to be used as a utility tractor in any farming business. An outstanding feature that this tractor has to offer is the full range of PTO speeds to match every farming need. The impressive lifting capacity, up to 2,000kg, is the best in class in its segment. 

The handover ceremony was held at the Faculty of Engineering at KMITL, in Bangkok. During the ceremony, Emre Karazli, CNH Industrial business director, agriculture, South East Asia, Pakistan and Japan, commented, “In its continuous efforts to contribute to society and support training and education, New Holland Agriculture donates this tractor to promote the development of agricultural engineering personnel in Thailand. We are committed to being a long-term partner in the development of the country’s agricultural mechanisation."

Industrial’s belief in the central role of training and in sharing its expertise with the local communities. We take pride in donating our New Holland tractor to the Institute and we hope to continue our cooperation on many other projects,” added Duanghathai Phongsaphan, Country Manager at CNH Industrial Thailand.

Associate Professor Dr Komsan Maleesee, dean of the Faculty of Engineering, stated, “We are glad to be receiving the support of CNH Industrial and its brand, New Holland, a global leader in agricultural equipment. Over the years we have established a successful partnership between the Company and the Faculty, promoting internship and hiring programs, and other important educational initiatives. In the future, we hope there would be even more opportunities for collaboration with our students.”

In 2017, New Holland further strengthened its presence in Thailand with the opening of the new CNH Industrial legal entity in Bangkok’s Bang Na district. This site was established to better serve the brand’s Thai customers. Furthermore, it operates its regional headquarters for South East Asia, Pakistan and Japan in Bangkok’s Sathorn district.
