Doug Fabick and Jeré Fabick (right) finalize the agreement.
Doug Fabick, dealer principal of John Fabick Tractor Company (Fabick Cat), Fenton, St. Louis County, Mo., and Jeré Fabick, dealer prinicipal of FABCO Equipment Inc., of Milwaukee, Wis., successfully finalized combining their two family-owned, independently-operated companies on July 1, 2015.
Bringing the two Cat dealerships together continues a shared heritage that dates back to 1917 when John Fabick Sr. founded the first Fabick Company in St. Louis.
The expanded organization is being led by Doug Fabick as CEO and dealer principal along with Jeré Fabick serving as president and co-dealer principal. Headquartered in St. Louis, the combined enterprise operates in a six-state region, including major portions of Missouri and Illinois, one county each in Kansas and Oklahoma, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the entire state of Wisconsin.
Concurrent with this change, the entire enterprise comes together under a common identity that features the Fabick Cat name. The company’s newly designed logo provides a fresh look that demonstrates the true sense of the two companies joining forces. It also conveys the beginning of exciting changes that will result from bringing the resources and experience of both organizations together to create one of the largest and most dynamic Cat dealerships in the nation.
Fabick Cat capabilities now include more than 1,100 employees including 550 professional service technicians, 37 locations with 200 service bays and a fleet of over 200 service vehicles.
As family-owned businesses spanning five generations, Fabick Cat has a very straightforward philosophy; treat people with respect, focus on building long-term relationships, and always provide superior value. A new chapter in this legacy begins today further strengthening the Fabick Companies’ motto that has endured for nearly 100 years: "To Ever Serve Our Customers Better."
