RACINE, Wis. - (April 8, 2008) - Case Construction Equipment announced it has been awarded contract number GS-30F-0006U by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). This business-to-government contract allows Case to make its products easily available for sale to the federal government.

GSA is a preferred source for federal government agencies to procure supplies - everything from pens and paper to construction equipment.

"Case is proud to join the GSA in its commitment to provide federal purchasers with products and systems that avoid the excess cost of bidding of contracts," said Cory Joubert, Case Government Sales Manager. "This activity reinforces our military product sales successes and enables us to reach the nationwide government market with Case products. We are confident that our GSA contract represents a future growth opportunity for Case."

Products currently offered in the Case GSA contract include loader/backhoes, loader/tool carriers, wheel loaders, skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, excavators, compact excavators, crawler dozers, rough-terrain forklifts and compaction equipment. During the next 12 months of the contract, the Case product line offering will be expanded to include more than 15 types of equipment and more than 90 models.

"A GSA contract is the quickest and easiest way to sell products to various federal government agencies," Joubert said. "With our GSA contract and the GSA Advantage Web site, our products are visible and readily available to the thousands of federal government purchasers who want to buy without going through the bid process."
