Oldcastle Materials is a federation of companies with more than 1,200 locations in 41 states. According to James Hasler, vice president, Case Construction Equipment-North America, Case will support Oldcastle’s equipment needs through its network of 240 dealer locations across the United States.

“Case has an outstanding reputation and has earned preferred supplier status based on key criteria as defined by our Equipment Advisory Board,” said Michael Coffey, vice president of equipment services, Oldcastle Materials Inc.

“This includes the performance and quality of Case equipment, the strength of their dealer network, a commitment to uptime, and the can-do attitude of their people.”

“We are excited to be a partner in helping supply construction equipment to Oldcastle’s operating companies,” Hasler said.

“We are very proud to have earned the opportunity to meet the equipment needs of the industry-leading organizations that are part of the Oldcastle Materials federation of companies,” Hasler said.

“We’re confident that Case wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks, excavators, rough-terrain forklifts and other equipment will deliver the value and performance Oldcastle requires. We look forward to supplying and supporting each and every one of their locations in the months ahead.”
