PRIMCO Inc. Invests in the Right People, and the Right Equipment

Founded in 1968, Primco Inc. of Fort Wayne, Indiana has served its community for more than 50 years. Originally formed as a small, family-owned bridge contracting company, Primco has grown exponentially over the decades. Now Primco employs more than 135 people, and in addition to bridge construction and rehabilitation, Primco also specializes in concrete paving, structural concrete work, as well as general commercial concrete and site development. The company also works closely with Speedway Construction Products, which supplies concrete and other construction materials both for Primco jobs, and for other contractors throughout Northeast Indiana.

“My father started the business with another gentleman back in 1968, and we have grown from a bridge crew company to road and bridge,” says Todd Fredrick, president, Primco, Inc. “We do heavy highway, foundation work, sheeting work, piling and concrete road building—anything to do with that, any concrete along with that. We also do our own manufacturing of the materials that we need for our work.”

CASE SiteWatch comes standard for three years on all CASE heavy equipment with ProCare, standard on all CASE backhoes, and is available as an option throughout the entire CASE equipment line.

SiteWatch complies with the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, ensuring that the solution is compatible with mixed fleets.

Ford Asphalt Company Expands Fleet with Next Generation of CASE Skid Steers

Ford Asphalt Company has provided commercial asphalt and concrete paving services to the St. Louis Metro area since the company was founded in 1975. Over the years, Ford has built a long list of repeat clients that continue to call on the company for quality paving work. In fact, more than 90 percent of the company’s work is repeat business.

Randy White of St. Louis-based CASE dealer Luby Equipment attributes this kind of longevity and success to positive leadership. “I think that it starts with the owner of the company (Bruce Ford) and how they treat their employees, and then that is reflected in their work,” says White. “It’s a people business. And when somebody at the top treats their people well, it’s just completely reflective of their day-to-day operations and work.”

CASE Unveils “Project Zeus” — the all-new 580 EV — the Industry’s First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces “Project Zeus” — the 580 EV (Electric Vehicle), the construction industry’s first fully electric backhoe loader. The power and performance of the 580 EV is equivalent to other diesel-powered backhoes in the CASE product line and provides considerably lower daily operating costs while also producing zero emissions — a motivating factor for utility and government contractors incentivized to work with equipment that leverages alternative fuels and lowers emissions.

City governments and municipalities will also benefit from the elimination of emissions for working in urban environments and close to other buildings/people, as well as the reduced noise generated by the equipment.

CASE Showcases Methane-Powered Concept Wheel Loader, ProjectTETRA, at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

CASE Construction Equipment is featuring the methane-powered ProjectTETRA wheel loader at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020, highlighting the manufacturer’s commitment to sustainability through alternative propulsion solutions. It is presented at the show alongside the industry’s first fully electric backhoe loader, the CASE 580 EV — showcasing a commitment to expanding alternative fuel solutions for equipment beyond compact machines to heavy equipment.

ProjectTETRA was first introduced at Bauma 2019, taking its name from the Greek number four, which refers to both the four hydrogen atoms present in the chemical formula for methane, as well as the tetrahedron shape of the methane molecule.

CASE Unveils Next-Gen Dozer at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

CASE Construction Equipment offers a preview of the new 850N dozer — the first in the upcoming all-new N Series dozer line. Packed with advanced features, the 850N represents the next phase in electro-hydraulic controls in small- to medium-sized dozers. The new machine also features CASE’s Universal Machine Control, expanding the popular platform into smaller dozers and making the entire CASE dozer product line compatible from the factory with all major suppliers of machine control technology.

“The expansion of electro-hydraulic controls into smaller, more compact dozers provides operators a level of control versatility and customization they have not previously seen in CASE dozers of this size,” says Nathaniel Waldschmidt, product marketing manager, CASE. “These intuitive controls allow for on-the-fly adjustment of factors such as blade, steering and shuttle sensitivity, as well as overall easier operation with reduced operator fatigue, as the new controls require less physical input than traditional dozer controls.”

CASE Previews New Technology Enhancements for G Series Wheel Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment previewed all new enhancements at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 to its G Series wheel loaders that feature increased technology to improve production and the overall operating experience. These latest enhancements (standard or optionally fit based on feature) are anchored by a large touchscreen display that serves as the command center for the new integrated onboard payload system, control customizations, improved telematics and streamlined operating parameters.

“Wheel loaders are well-suited to incremental improvements in technology and operation that achieve considerable cost savings and productivity gains,” says Andrew Dargatz, product marketing manager, CASE. “The technology advances incorporated into G Series wheel loaders through the new operator interface simplify operation, streamline equipment reporting and maintenance activities, and give each operator more tools to improve overall performance and efficiency.”

CASE Highlights Accessibility and Workforce Inclusivity with Accessible Backhoe Loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

CASE Construction Equipment showcased its new accessible backhoe loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, designed to support workforce inclusivity and provide operators of all mobility levels with an opportunity to work in construction equipment operation.

The machine features a purpose-built elevator and accessories that allow the operator to be elevated into the cab and workstation. The operator positions the elevator chair near the ground via a pair of external joysticks in a manner that allows them to easily transfer into the seat. Those same joysticks then raise the operator into the cab where they transition into the backhoe seat. The chair is then tucked away into a position that does not obstruct machine operation.
