Fabick Cat held its 30th Annual Season Opener April 20 and 21, 2018, in Eau Claire, Wis.

Fabick Cat, the 100-year-old Caterpillar dealership covering territories throughout Missouri, Illinois, the entire state of Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, celebrated its Season Opener with customers and employees alike.

Fabick Cat welcomed customers to its Eau Claire facility for lunch, to check out displayed equipment, new products and some of the latest technology offerings including simulators. Fabick Cat is a family-owned, family-oriented organization and as such, invited employees and their families to join in the celebration, as well.

Turnout for the event has grown over the years and this year's attendance was strong with more than 1,100 guests attending — including many new faces.

The Fabick Cat family extended its gratitude to all those who attended and the company already is looking forward to 2019's spring kick-off.
