Case New Holland (CNH), a leading manufacturer of agricultural and construction equipment, has been involved in efforts to relieve the humanitarian crisis in Haiti since the country was stricken by a mammoth earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. The company is supporting relief efforts by providing Case, New Holland and Kobelco construction equipment and companywide monetary donations.
“Soged S.A., the Case dealer in Haiti, immediately deployed available excavators, wheel loaders and other equipment to assist in recovery efforts. And EDOM — Empresas Dominicanas C.A., a New Holland/Kobelco dealer in the Dominican Republic, was able to offer delivery of up to 10 machines within 24 hours,” said Jim McCullough, president and CEO, CNH Construction Equipment. “Our Case, New Holland and Kobelco brands will continue to support recovery efforts in the coming weeks,” he added.
CNH also has offered several pieces of heavy construction equipment to Haiti, including crawler excavators ranging from 7 to 16 tons (6.3 to 14.5 t), a tractor loader backhoe and motorgrader, through the United Nations.
Finally, to facilitate employees wishing to make a direct contribution to earthquake victims, CNH will match employee cash donations, in addition to making a company donation.
