CNH contributes to Haiti disaster relief
In January, Racine, Wis.-based agricultural and construction equipment manufacturer Case New Holland (CNH) sent construction equipment and companywide monetary donations to help relief efforts in Haiti after the country was struck by a mammoth earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. “Soged S.A., the Case dealer in Haiti, immediately deployed available excavators, wheel loaders and other equipment to assist in recovery efforts,” said Jim McCullough, president and CEO of CNH Construction Equipment. “And EDOM — Empresas Dominicanas C.A., a New Holland/Kobelco dealer in the Dominican Republic, was able to offer delivery of up to 10 machines within 24 hours.”
CNH also has offered several pieces of heavy construction equipment to Haiti, including crawler excavators ranging from 7 to 16 tons, a tractor loader backhoe and motor grader, through the United Nations. Finally, to facilitate employees wishing to make direct contributions to earthquake victims, CNH will match employee cash donations in addition to making a company donation.
