Case Construction Equipment have further expanded their UK dealer network with the appointment of Hodge Plant in Scotland.
Based in Blantyre, Hodge Plant are one of Scotland’s leading sales and equipment rental companies, operating a fleet of more than 100 machines. To facilitate further growth they have recently moved into new larger premises, enabling them to increase the size of their service workshops and further develop the parts facility.
To support growth of sales, Hodge have also appointed two sales people to grow and develop the Case full product line business. Tina Neil will look after the west of Scotland and Neil Mackenzie will cover the eastern region.
Hodge Plant, who are also the largest used plant sales company in Scotland, will bring their extensive knowledge and experience of the market place to this new venture.
Alistair Hodge, managing director of Hodge Plant, explained why they chose Case. ‘We’ve been looking for about two years now for a premium brand of construction equipment and Case certainly fits this category. The Case full product line fits perfectly with our future plans for machinery sales. Case have a very loyal following in Scotland and we are delighted to be taking that forward. Our aim is to look after existing customers and to build on the success of the Case brand.
‘We will support the product 100%, and take on all existing warranties. We have a solid base to work from and we are investing in the people and the facilities to build this business going forward.’
‘We are absolutely delighted to be working with this company,’ said Rick Morris, network development manager at Case Construction Equipment. ‘I am confident they will do a great job for Case over the coming years, supporting Case customers in all business sectors.’
Scott Freeman, business director for Case Construction Equipment, added: ‘I’m extremely pleased with the appointment of Hodge Plant. Scotland is a very important industry area for Case, as a full-line construction equipment manufacturer. Hodge Plant will enable Case to grow and truly show the customers the excellent benefits of the products we have, fuel efficiency and product reliability in particular. We are also looking forward to the forthcoming ScotPlant exhibition, where Case and Hodge Plant will be putting on a very large display of all products, and we are looking forward to welcoming existing and new customers to our stand.’
