Case Construction Equipment has expanded its parts, sales, rental and service coverage in the southeastern U.S. with the addition of two new dealer locations in Wilmington, and Asheville, North Carolina from Hills Machinery.

Hills Machinery now has nine locations serving the Carolinas.

“The team at Hills Machinery has been extremely deliberate in expansion over the years, and has strategically picked locations that ensure swift and trustworthy service and field response,” says Terry Dolan, vice president – North America, Case Construction Equipment. “The Carolinas are booming with growth, and Hills Machinery has positioned itself in a way that makes them the equipment partner of choice in the diverse construction and agricultural markets in the region, and one of the strongest representatives of Case in North America.”

The new facilities are open and put equipment owners throughout the territory within 90 miles of a Hills location, the company says.

“These new locations allow us to take what was already strong coverage throughout both states and further ensure access to new and used equipment sales, as well as parts and service,” says Jim Hills, president, Hills Machinery. “Work and equipment demands vary wildly from the coast to the far western reaches of our territory, and each new branch will bolster both access to in-shop service and field service technicians, and the latest in earthmoving and farming technology.”
