Case has manufactured its 250000th skid steer loader. The machine was bought by A. Folino Construction, a paving contractor from Pennsylvania, US.
A ceremony was held at the company's global skid steer manufacturing facility in Wichita, Kansas, US during which the machine was presented to its new owner, Dino Folino of A. Folino Construction, a paving contractor from Oakmont, Pennsylvania, US.
Mr Folino said, "We're honored to take delivery of this machine, and we appreciate the attention that comes with owning the 250000th Case skid steer. We'll put it to work right away."
Case began producing skid steers in 1969 with the 1530 Uni-Loader model. Skid steer marketing manager, Curtis Goettel said, "In 2000, we manufactured our 100,000th skid steer. Then, just 10 years later, we more than doubled our sales."
