About O&K ORENSTEIN AND KOPPEL
O&K, Orenstein & Koppel Aktiengesellschaft, was a German manufacturer of hydraulic
excavators and construction equipment until acquired in 1997 by CNH New Holland North
America. They manufactured O&K excavators under the Fiatallis name brand. O&K had a
long tradition of sophisticated design and exceptional quality, as did FiatAllis.
In 1998 New Holland Construction, the North American construction division, introduced a
full line of O&K hydraulic excavators in North America. O&K also supplied New Holland
Construction with hydrostatic wheel loaders. In Latin America, New Holland sold O&K
hydraulic excavators under the Fiatallis brand name in selected markets like Brazil. In Europe,
O&K maintained its own distribution network and continued to market its product line under
the O&K brand name. New Holland strengthened the O&K organization with a rapid
expansion of its research and development activity after the acquisition.
Founded in Berlin in 1876, O&K began building excavators in 1908, and quickly established
a reputation for innovation in excavator design and manufacture. The company designs and
manufactures both crawler and wheeled excavators. O&K is the industry leader in grader
technology, and is well known for both large wheel loaders and hydrostatic wheel loaders.
The company employs about 2,000 people across Europe and generated sales of
approximately 800 million (DM) in 1998.
