“Maritime Case joins the growing network of Ammann distributors across
Canada,” says Peter Price, area sales manager of Ammann Canada.
“Together with other Maritime dealers, they will help to solidify
Ammann’s position in the region.”

Maritime Case is a Fredericton-based, family-owned business with various
holdings and has represented Case IH farm machinery since 1988. In
2007, the company reorganized to become the exclusive Case Construction
distributor in New Brunswick and P.E.I.

“Our main customer base has been smaller contractors, owner-operators,
and landscapers, but we are looking forward to introducing the larger
compaction units and asphalt rollers to the road building fleets,” says
Chase McGrath, Maritime Case's general manager. “At this time, Case and
Ammann are the only two brands we carry. They are very complimentary and
provide a complete lineup for our customer.”

While McGrath readily admits that Ammann products are not well known in
the Maritimes, he says initial customer response to the line has been
very favourable. McGrath says his company will stock a full line of
light and heavy Ammann compaction equipment.

Maritime Case is staffed by some of the industry’s most experienced
equipment personnel who pride themselves on their collective knowledge.
The sales team of three – Tony Durling, Bill O’Hanley, and Andrew Miller
– has 60 years of selling experience, while the parts manager, Bob
Lyons, and service manager, Peter Ferris have 40 and 35 years experience,
respectively.

Peter Price is providing onsite Ammann sales and parts training for the
Maritime Case sale team, while Chase will be sending members of his
service team for factory training in Switzerland, at Ammann
headquarters.

To serve their customers better and offer more showroom space, Maritime
Case has invested in a new company site in Fredericton on 5 acres of
land with excellent access and visibility from the main highway.

“Ammann is the perfect complement to our existing Case products and
we’re excited to introduce the complete line to our customers,” says
Chase.
