Mon September 24, 2018 - Southeast Edition #20
Gregory Poole



On Aug. 15 and 16, Gregory Poole hosted a Next Generation Excavator Event to showcase the new machines that Cat has to offer and the technology that now comes standard with these machines. The event was held in Clayton, N.C., at Caterpillar's Visitor's Center. With more than 120 customers in attendance between the two days, the Gregory Poole team was able to demonstrate how these new technologies work and answer any questions that the customers had.

The event featured the 320 GC, 320, and 323 hydraulic excavators specifically, but made sure to recognize the whole line of excavators that Cat has to offer. Representatives from both Caterpillar and Gregory Poole came together for break-out sessions and equipment demos highlighting the next generation technology and what it means for customers.
