It is said, “a dog is a man’s best friend.” However, Jomac Construction’s Mike McCabe’s best friends are Cats — as in Caterpillars. He has found them to be reliable, hardworking and easy to handle.

McCabe founded Jomac Construction in 1980 with just a few pieces of equipment that included an International backhoe, a Cat 955 trackloader, an old Trojan rough-terrain loader, a John Deere 450 dozer and a Ford single-axle dump truck. With these pieces of construction equipment and two employees, Jomac performed site work in the Middletown, NJ, area.

Over the years as the company grew, McCabe needed more equipment or replacements for the units he already had. He did his homework, not only checking out the equipment but also product reliability and support, which is especially important in the construction business. Prolonged down time is something that he wanted to avoid.

In addition, McCabe was looking for equipment that also would give him a “greater return for his equipment dollar,” and he found what he was looking for in Caterpillar equipment and the Foley Inc. dealership of Piscataway, NJ.

“Foley helps me get the equipment I need on a timely basis. They give me loaner machines when I need them. They also let met try out machines before buying,” said McCabe.

Today, McCabe owns approximately 60 pieces of Caterpillar equipment, which includes 312C L and 325B L excavators, 420 D backhoe loaders, 303.5 mini-excavators and 248 skid steer loaders, D4G XL track-type tractors and a fleet of trucks, trailers and support vehicles.

To keep the equipment running, Jomac shop mechanics perform routine maintenance on all equipment, but it also has service trucks and mechanics for emergency field repairs.

McCabe is sold on Caterpillar equipment and Foley is ready to meet his equipment needs.
