CaseTech (Scotland) replaces Gammies

The latest addition to the Case Construction dealer network is CaseTech (Scotland), a company set up with help from private investors to replace the Gammies dealership in Cumbernauld.

Gammies had supported Case equipment sales since the collapse of Saville Tractors in 2006. Earlier this year Gammies, which represents Case through its depots in Forfar and Laurencekirk, decided to re-focus its business and concentrate on its traditional territory in north-east Scotland.

This move necessitated the closure of the Cumbernauld depot and the potential loss of six jobs. “Naturally, we didn’t want to lose the dealership and we didn’t want any job losses,” says Rick Morris, dealer development manager with Case Construction.

“As our partners, Gammies came to us to see if we could find a solution. The outcome was that we found a third party who was prepared to invest in a new dealership that would ensure continued employment for the depot staff and uninterrupted service for our customers,” adds Mr Morris.

CaseTech is staffed by the same six-strong team, led by general manager Willie McMillan, who manned the Gammies depot. “We are all former Saville people so we have plenty experience with Case and an affinity with the equipment,” says Mr McMillan. “By keeping the existing staff, CaseTech has secured on-going customer support and brand continuity.”
