Case Construction Equipment this week announced its premier sponsorship of the 19th Annual National Gas Rodeo. Since 2007, Case has been the exclusive provider of loader/backhoes and compact excavators for the event, which showcases preferred safety practices and efficient use of equipment in natural gas installations.
The competition will be held Sept. 15 in Fairview Heights, Ill. Two- and four-person teams made up of elite utility crews from across the United States will compete in a variety of skill events focused on safe, time-efficient performance, using construction equipment and other tools of the trade. The annual event has grown to include more than 30 teams and more than 400 spectators.
“Case loader/backhoes and compact excavators are integral for utility and infrastructure projects across the United States, so we are returning for our third year to be the exclusive provider of loader/backhoes and compact excavators for this legendary rodeo competition,” said Katie Pullen, Case brand marketing manager. “This is a great opportunity to get the best operators in the utility and gas industry behind the controls of Case loader/backhoes and compact excavators.”
The Midwest Energy Association produces the National Gas Rodeo, with the support of the American Gas Association, the American Public Gas Association and the Southern Gas Association.
