WHY DID IH HAVE BRANCH HOUSES? WHAT ARE THEY? DIDNT THE PARTS COME DIRECT FROM FACTORY TO THE DEALER? DOES CASEIH HAVE BRANCH HOUSES?

they used them to keep dealers supplied. basically parts warehouses. this way customers didn't have to wait a week for necessary parts to arrive. It's why it only takes 1 or two days to get a part you ordered the day before.

so, yes, case IH has branch houses.
