Case Construction and Leica Geosystems form global partnership
Case Construction Equipment has announced its strategic partnership with Leica Geosystems to provide machine control technologies – both factory installed and aftermarket – throughout its line of construction equipment.
The agreement also includes a commitment to shared product development, and is part of a global alliance between Leica Geosystems and CNH Industrial.
The agreement enables the full integration of Leica Geosystems solutions and other machine control opportunities from the factory on Case equipment, and customers receive greater access and support to these technologies through the Case dealer network.
Case Construction Equipment NAFTA Vice President Jim Hasler says the agreement will make it easier for contractors to deploy the necessary machine control technology through their Case dealer.
"Thanks to this partnership with Leica Geosystems, we can look at our equipment from step one and determine the best ways to integrate machine control and other technologies into each machine," he says.
"By doing this early in the development process, we’ll be able to provide grading and earthmoving contractors with entirely new levels of productivity and efficiency."
Leica Geosystems NAFTA president Ken Mooyman says the company is thrilled to have been selected by Case Construction for the opportunity.
"Our partnership enables Case to provide Leica Geosystems solutions direct from the factory and gives their customers broad access to 1, 2 and 3D Machine Control systems and support through the Case dealer network," he says.
"Together, we have a great opportunity to dramatically improve the working lives of construction equipment users everywhere. Additionally it allows both parties greater early involvement in the development process facilitating equipment integration with machine control technologies."
