Winning partnership between Soucy and Case IH

Drummondville (Canada), August 24th, 2018 ― Soucy once again innovates with a new, more efficient track, which will equip Case IH Steiger® and Magnum™ Rowtrac™ tractors. The new Soucy track offering will officially launch at the Farm Progress Show in August 2018; one of the largest trade show in the agriculture industry.  

This is a turning point for both companies, which will benefit from their long-standing expertise and know how. ''Designing and manufacturing rubber tracks for Case IH is an indicator that our products have reached superior level of quality and that we have gained the trust of the best players in the agriculture industry'' says Annie Lavoie, General Manager at Soucy Caoutchouc.

Technology serving farmers
The benefits of Soucy tracks are significant for farmers as they minimize damages on the harvest. Soucy tracks also save fuel with superior traction, reach road speed of 25 mph (40 km/h), and are 40% more durable than competitive tracks. Indeed, through extensive testing, not a single track ever blew out a tread bar, thanks to the reduced heat generation proprietary technology. The tracks’ high quality allows Soucy to offer a lifetime tread blowout free warranty, another asset for farmers.

''The integration of the Soucy technology is an advantage for Case IH, but more importantly for our customers, says Mitch Kaiser, Steiger Tractor Marketing Manager, Case IH. The tracks are an added value to the equipment as they allow farmers to access their fields in nearly any condition.''

Trade show attendees are invited to learn more about Soucy products at the Case IH booth at the Farm Progress Show, from August 28 to 30, in Boone, Iowa. The public can also get more information by visiting the official website www.acetracks.com
