The 175-year history of CASE Construction Equipment is a source of extraordinary pride and commitment.
Emerging in the late nineteenth century, the company formed around the innovative practicality of J.I. Case in the field of steam engines. Over the following decades, the company began to pioneer equipment for road construction and in doing so helped to ‘pave the world’.
By the beginning of the early twentieth century, CASE had established itself as the leading manufacturer of construction equipment. Continuing to grow and prosper, CASE goes on building our business, our reputation and the world we live in.
You can take pride in the CASE name on your machine. It’s backed by more than a century of productivity and performance, and designed with reality in mind to better meet the needs of our customers. It’s an approach we call practical innovation: Providing intuitive solutions that drive productivity and efficiency at your job site.
Plus, we’re here for you not just at the time of purchase, but also after you’ve put 1,000 or 10,000 machine hours on it. When our name is on your machine, you can count on CASE and your CASE dealer for the ultimate ownership experience: intuitive solutions, high-performing equipment, flexible financing, genuine CASE parts, along with expert advice and prompt service.
We started out in 1962 by designing and building concrete mixers and in 1983 we were one of the first European manufacturers to develop and produce a range of telehandlers. Our offering has continued to expand over the years: in 1998 we presented the S.I.R. telehandler series — Samson, Icarus and Runner.
In 2000 we unveiled the now well-known Pegasus family of telehandlers with 360- and 400-degree rotating boom. More recently we launched HERCULES, the new line of high load capacity vehicles for heavy industry, as well as the AGRI PLUS and AGRI TECH vehicles, which are specially designed for intensive agricultural use. Added to this is the Agri Pivot range of wheel loaders with telescopic boom.
The result of this constant commitment is an offering that includes no fewer than 143 current production models. Furthermore, the state-of-the-art DIECI technical department provides customized solutions developed from standard vehicles based on customers’ specific technical requirements, to meet their special application needs.
To progressively implement our technology solutions, our production processes and our vocational training, we launched the Kaizen Project—inspired by the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement—to eliminate waste and inefficiency. In line with this approach that reflects the most modern organizational standards, a radical change is under way that will increase productivity and quality while eliminating activities that do not create added value for the company and its customers.
To achieve this objective, DIECI is completely overhauling its production processes to simplify and streamline the management of the various tasks. The nine existing assembly lines and their complementary departments will converge into a new model based on six “integrated flow channels”, which will output the finished products ready for shipment.
In 1996 Kees Hoogendoorn and his wife Annet Schoenmaker started Keestrack with an ambitious vision: to build the world’s first direct feed scalper.
After we started a trading business in construction equipment in 1988 we moved on into the crushing & screening business resulting in the idea of the direct feed scalper. We decided to build our own screen in 1996. Soon afterwards Kees went on to develop the mobile impact crusher and, after acquiring OM in 2010, added a full range of jaw crushers to the Keestrack product range. Today direct feed scalpers are the industry standard, with Keestrack proudly leading the way in mobile screening and crushing equipment.
We’re still 100% privately owned and managed by the Hoogendoorn family, with the idea of family at the heart of everything we do. We support each other as we strive to continually improve our products, creating an atmosphere that clients recognize and appreciate. The result gives us an unshakable belief in Keestrack and our ability to succeed.
Building superior crushers and screeners will continue to be the goal at Keestrack, where we have started with inventing the world’s first direct feed screen on tracks.
