Fri March 22, 2019 - National Edition

LBX Company LLC, of Lexington, Ky., raised $51,000 in support of the American Heart Association's (AHA) annual "Life is Why We Give campaign. LBX made a commitment to donate $500 for every Link-Belt excavator, forestry machine or material handler retailed in February in North America. This is the third year that LBX has participated as a national supporter of the campaign. LBX has committed to support this program through 2021.

"LBX is proud to continue our involvement with the American Heart Association. We thank our dealers and employees for a great month of results that couldn't have happened without their support," said Eric Sauvage, president & CEO of LBX. "With their help, we sold 102 machines in February."

LBX is also a supporter of the Central Kentucky Heart Walk, which will take place at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky., on May 11, 2019.

"We are so pleased that LBX has once again chosen to participate in the Life is Why We Give campaign here in Lexington," said Joey Maggard, executive director for the Lexington Division of the American Heart Association. "They join many companies across the nation who have chosen to make an extraordinary impact in the fight against heart disease and stroke by participating in this campaign. We are deeply grateful for their ongoing support."

A check will be presented to the Lexington chapter of the American Heart Association in the near future.
