Case CEO sees rise in GCC interest

Case president and CEO Jim McCullough said Intermat has been a successful event for the company and that continuing the firm’s presence at the exhibition was the right move.
“We’ve had a respectable show and we’ve been busy all week. There has been plenty of activity,” he said.
McCullough said the firm’s distribution network responded well to the exhibition and added: “We’ve had an excellent turnout from our dealers and from the Middle East, in particular, as well as Eastern Europe and Northern Europe.”
