Got technology? SITECH Metro Northeast LLC hosted an open house on Sept. 18 at H.O. Penn Machinery Company’s facility in Newington, Conn. By hosting the event at a key partner’s location, SITECH was able to offer a full demonstration area of Caterpillar machines equipped with the latest in 2D and 3D grade control systems. With SITECH, Trimble and H.O. Penn representatives on site, attendees did not have to wait to have questions answered, and along with machine demonstrations there were product demonstrations with the latest Trimble site positioning systems.

Most popular at the event was a 2D GCS Flex System on a Cat 328D excavator that guides an operator to proper depth and slope. Customers also were able to operate a Cat CB54 roller with intelligent compaction, a CAT D6N with a 3D GPS grade control system and a Cat 289D compact track loader with a laser guided level best box. Further, there were multiple static displays of technology enabled machines for attendees to review.

Corey Freed, operations manager of SITECH Metro Northeast, said “This event provides a great opportunity for all customers to get to know SITECH’s unparalleled sales and support team while learning about Trimble products and solutions that improve jobsite productivity and profitability.”
