Navistar International Corporation is the parent company of International Truck and Engine Corporation, a leading producer of mid-range diesel engines, medium trucks, heavy trucks, severe service vehicles, and parts and service sold under the International brand.
IC Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary, produces school buses. The company also is a private label designer and manufacturer of Ford diesel engines for the pickup trucks, vans and SUVs markets.
The company’s products, parts and services are sold through a network of nearly 1,000 dealer outlets in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico and more than 60 dealers in 90 countries throughout the world. The company also provides financing for its customers and distributors principally through its wholly owned subsidiary, Navistar Financial Corporation.
A bit of historical information: The merger of McCormick Harvesting Machine Company and the Deering Harvester Company in 1902 resulted in the formation of the International Harvester Corporation (IHC) of Chicago, Illinois, which over the next three quarters of a century evolved to become a diversified manufacturer of farming equipment, construction equipment, gas turbines, trucks, buses, and related components.
International Harvester fell on hard times during the poor Agriculture economy in the early to mid-1980’s and began exiting many of its business sectors in an effort to survive; in the process, it shed most of its operating divisions: Construction Equipment Division to Dresser Industries; Solar (gas turbines) Division to Caterpillar; Cub Cadet (lawn and garden equipment) to MTD Products and, lastly, the Agricultural Division to Tenneco who merged it with their JI Case subsidiary. After the Ag sale in 1985, all that remained of IH was the Truck and Engine Divisions and the company changed its name in 1986 to Navistar International Corporation.
