In response to the devastating earthquake that hit Sichuan Province in central China on May 12, Case Construction Equipment donated a Case 695 four-wheel drive backhoe loader and hydraulic hammer to assist the emergency services teams with the relief efforts. In addition, Case dispatched two skilled backhoe loader operators from the company’s headquarters in Shanghai to assist and train members of the Chinese Army-Air Force to help speed recovery efforts.

“We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to the people who suffered from the earthquake in Sichuan and its surrounding areas,” said Howard Dale, managing director, Case Construction Machinery (Shanghai) Company Ltd. “This tragic event has affected many thousands of people. All of us at Case hope that our support can bring assistance to some of the people who may still be trapped in the rubble, as well as to the survivors.”

Just returning from China, Case CEO and President Jim McCullough added, “The suffering of those impacted cannot be fully grasped. We at Case wanted to help aid the relief efforts and we remain hopeful our equipment donation brings the assistance needed to save more lives.”
