CASE Construction Equipment announces it has been chosen as one of two suppliers for a tender with industry-leading building materials company CEMEX. This deal secures cooperation between the two brands, seeing CEMEX complete a large purchase of CASE machines that offer reduced fuel consumption for multiple markets across Europe, including, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany and the UK.
Following winning a share of the tender, the first tranche of machines has already been delivered in France with subsequent machines being delivered in the coming weeks.
Speaking on behalf of CASE, Andrea Rapali, Europe Key Account Director, notes: “CEMEX is a global construction materials company that is building a better future through sustainable products and solutions. We are pleased that they have chosen CASE to support them, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship and working closely with them now and in the future.”
Craig Hooper, Mobile Equipment Fleet & Category Manager for CEMEX Europe, commented: “As one of the world’s largest building solutions providers, CEMEX is committed to leading on the path to a low carbon economy and is closely evaluating all areas of its business to make efficiency improvements.
“The vehicles we use as part of our work are a key part of this and we are pleased to have agreed this contract with CASE for these vehicles, which will provide a significant sustainability benefit to CEMEX’s European operations.
