Case Construction Equipment to Buy Western Power & Equipment

Sat August 16, 2008 - West Edition

Case Construction Equipment has entered an agreement to purchase select dealership assets of Western Power & Equipment of Vancouver, Wash.

Western Power & Equipment sells, rents and services construction and industrial equipment through eight locations in California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

“Western Power serves an important geographic region,” James Hasler, vice president of Case Construction Equipment, said. “This investment ensures continued growth of the business that Western Power has developed.”

The acquisition confirms Case’s commitment to its customers in these markets.

“We will work closely with Western Power’s 145 employees to deliver the high caliber of equipment, finance, parts and service support customers expect from Case,” Hasler said. “There will be no interruption in service at any of the Western Power dealerships.”

Case expects to finalize the sale within the next 30 to 45 days — subject to due diligence and customer closing conditions.

In addition to its Vancouver, Wash., headquarters, Western Power & Equipment operates Case dealerships in Redding, Sacramento and Stockton, Calif.; Sparks/Reno, Nev.; Portland and Salem, Ore.; and Auburn and Marysville, Wash.
