Soil Connect and K-Tec Earthmovers have signed a memorandum of understanding toward a strategic alliance to promote “responsible and efficient earthmoving and material transportation practices,” according to a joint press release.

No details were provided, but the companies jointly stated:

“In order to bring awareness to the common pitfalls and inefficiencies faced by today’s dirt movers, the companies have agreed to work together to educate the earthmoving industry through multiple cross-promotional channels about new technologies and best practices.”

The companies have also discussed the integration of Soil Connect’s eTickets system into K-Tec’s new scraper telematics portal dashboard.

“I see many parallels between our businesses,” said Cliff Fetner, founder and CEO of Soil Connect, in a prepared statement. “Our marketplace is able to connect these hardworking professionals to make their lives easier.”

Said Mike Palitsky, president/CEO of K-Tec Earthmovers in a statement:

“We believe that working together progresses our mutual goal to advance earthmoving technology in the USA, which will benefit both of our organizations—as well as the entire industry—now and for the foreseeable future.”
