Case Co-Sponsors Landscaping Award Program

Fri May 29, 2009 - National Edition

Case Construction Equipment is co-sponsoring Total Landscape Care magazine’s Landscaper of the Year program, considered a prestigious award in the landscaping industry. The program recognizes the 12 best and brightest landscape companies across the United States.

The program acknowledges companies who exemplify the highest standards of landscape professionals, business acumen, marketing and equipment management expertise, attention to safety and community involvement.

“Landscapers often start their businesses with a piece of Case equipment, and this year we’re celebrating 40 years of skid steer production,” said Jim Hasler, vice president, Case Construction Equipment. “As our landscape customers expand their businesses, Case is there for them with a full line of equipment for every type of project.”

Total Landscape Care editors will interview all entrants. The top 12 finalists will attend a four-day, three-night, all-expenses-paid Caribbean cruise in November 2009. The event includes a special reception, industry roundtable session and an awards banquet.

The winning contractor’s business will be featured on the front cover and in a multi-page story in the January 2010 issue of Total Landscape Care. The 11 finalists also will be featured in articles in subsequent issues of the magazine.

To qualify, nominees must have annual revenues of $8 million or less, have owned a landscaping company for at least five years, have an excellent safety record, own at least three ride-on machines and provide a positive reflection on the landscape industry overall. Contractors can submit applications on their own behalf. Other industry professionals, such as equipment dealers, also can submit applications on behalf of a landscaping contractor.
