CASE Construction Equipment hosted a stand dedicated to its advanced equipment and celebrated the brand’s 180th anniversary at NAMPO South Africa.
At the NAMPO 2022 Harvest Day held outside Bothaville, South Africa, our CASE brand had the opportunity to host an entire stand to showcase our industry leading equipment. This was also the first time that CASE hosted its own stand, following the acquisition of its South African distributors to strengthen its local presence.
The 570T and 570ST are our brand’s leading products, featuring the powerful S8000 engine, outstanding performance and fast response time. Our CASE excavator range was represented by a 22-ton CX220C LC Heavy Duty excavator, powered by a highly fuel – efficient engine. The 821F front-end loader on display delivers best-in-class horsepower and massive torque, which combined with the strong and fast hydraulics, result in exceptional productivity and performance. The 885B Grader, with its unique mouldboard design, fuel-efficient, turbocharged engine, and rear-mounted cab, delivers high-productivity, high-precision performance, and excellent operator comfort. Two skid steer loaders, the SR150 and SR200, completed the product exhibit, known for their power and productivity and outstanding comfort and visibility in the spacious cab with ample glazed areas.
This year also marks an important milestone for CASE - 180 years of pioneering technologies and innovations that have changed the industry and earned the trust of businesses across the world. Our brand commemorated its strong legacy on the stand with an informative panel outlining key milestones and innovations in its history under the theme “Proud of our past. Focused on our future.”
Graham Forte, Divisional Managing Director, Construction segment SA, said that the entire CASE Construction team is extremely proud to be part of the company. “Over the years, CASE Construction has shown that its excellent product range and support to its customers take precedence. We can not wait for the future and look forward to the brand’s sustainable growth within South Africa.”
Bakkies Botha, legendary Rugby Union player and CASE Construction Brand Ambassador, was a special guest at the celebration, sharing a short testimony of his experience with the machines.
He said that the extended range of equipment CASE has available, makes his life as a farmer much easier. “CASE Construction has a tool for every conceivable application on the farm, whether you want to dig ditches for irrigation pipes or whether to build."
This year's NAMPO Harvest Day exceeded expectations with an attendance of 73 000 visitors. It was a great opportunity for us to have quality discussions with producers, obtain quality leads and to establish our market presence in South Africa.
