Machines specced for Africa and Middle East to be on display at Bauma Conexpo Africa
Case Construction Equipment has announced it will display a full line of equipment at next month’s Bauma Conexpo Africa show in Johannesburg.
The line-up will include a range of machines the company offers in the Middle East, featuring its recently launched offering for road-building operations, including the Case 1107 DX vibratory soil compactor, the new 570T backhoe loader, the 821F wheel loader, and the Case B Series crawler excavators and graders.
The Johannesburg show, which runs September 15 to 18, will feature construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and construction vehicles.
Case participated in the previous 2013 event, which saw 20,000 visitors attend, the majority coming from South Africa and other sub-Saharan African countries.
Speaking about the planned event, Andy Blandford, Vice President CNH Industrial Construction Equipment for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, said: “The African continent offers great opportunities of growth… The Maghreb region and Sub-Saharan Africa – and in particular South Africa – are key markets for us.”
Bauma Conexpo Africa provides exhibitors with a platform to meet with customers and demonstrate how they are capable of helping help them to achieve their targets and run their business effectively.
Blandford added: “Case has strong dealers in most of the larger African markets and offers the type of equipment that our customers need: robust, reliable machines able to operate in the toughest conditions, and at the right cost of ownership.”
According to Blandford, the construction machinery market in Africa is growing. The African economy has tripled since 2000, and now represents a significant opportunity across multiple sectors – with $2.6 trillion of revenue expected by 2020 across resources, agriculture, consumer and infrastructure, in addition to $344 billion being invested for the implementation of infrastructure measures within the next 15 years.
