Although rain poured on the 10th annual Quarry Quest, kids of all ages still turned out for the Michels Materials quarry event in Neenah, Wis., Sept. 13.

The event gave visitors a one-of-a-kind opportunity to tour a working quarry, ride and explore giant excavation machinery and participate in a host of fun, hands-on educational activities such as “prospecting” for fool’s gold or mixing up a batch of concrete “cake.”The event gave families a chance to come out and participate in fun activities and learn about the construction and mining industries.

With the lease coming up at the end of the year, executives at FABCO Rents, a wholly owned subsidiary of FABCO Equipment Inc., began searching for a new home for its Waukesha operations in April 2005. It did not take long for FABCO President and CEO Jerè Fabick to settle on the unlikely choice of an old airport hangar across the street from Waukesha Airport at 2445 Pewaukee Rd.
