HODGE Plant has secured a dealership for Case Construction Equipment.
The Blantyre-based sales and equipment rental firm operates 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.
Hodge has also appointed two sales people to grow and develop the Case full product line business. Tina Neil will look after the west of Scotland with Neil Mackenzie covering the eastern region.
Alistair Hodge, Managing Director of Hodge Plant, said, “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 has 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.”
Rick Morris, Network Development Manager at Case Construction Equipment, said, “We are absolutely delighted to be working with this company. 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.”
