Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and a delegation of business leaders, elected officials, contractors and Foxconn representatives today named CASE Construction Equipment among the 27 state contractors and suppliers who will perform work on the new Foxconn development in Racine County, Wis.

 “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – old Ben Franklin wasn’t a heavy equipment operator or fleet manager, but he might as well have been when he first said those famous words.

It All Started With a Backhoe

Jon Fye founded Fye Excavating in Sperry, Iowa in 1995 with only three employees. Incorporated in 1998, Fye Excavating Inc. now employs over 50 people. The company provides full-service excavation, site work, commercial, utility, and “plan and spec” work in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri—the majority of their work being within a 100-mile radius of the company’s headquarters.

The beginning of Jon’s story started with a backhoe. Out of high school, he began his career on the Burlington Northern Railroad as an electrician, stripping and rebuilding locomotives. In 1995, he was building a house for his family, and decided to purchase a CASE 580 Super E backhoe.

CASE and Michigan Dealers Donate Equipment to Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity for Urban Renewal/Recovery Project

CASE Construction Equipment, RPM Machinery, Southeastern Equipment, Habitat for Humanity of Kent County and Team Rubicon teamed up for a heavy equipment operator training and socio-economic improvement project—named Operation Fearless Mary—in the Roosevelt Park neighborhood of Grand Rapids, Michigan. RPM Machinery and Southeastern Equipment donated the use of several skid steers and excavators, while Team Rubicon brought in 72 volunteers and 20 new members from across the U.S. for the operation.

For Team Rubicon — an organization that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams for disaster relief — this kind of training/community service operation prepares their volunteers for operating heavy equipment during deployments, and helps to solidify the humanitarian and relationship-building skills that are crucial in disaster response scenarios. A key component is Team Rubicon’s partnership with CASE, which provides both training and heavy equipment through its dealer network.

Team Rubicon, in Partnership with CASE, Begins Heavy Equipment Operations for Hurricane Harvey Recovery

Veteran-led disaster response organization Team Rubicon began the heavy equipment operations of “Operation Hard Hustle” on Thursday, September 14, 2017 with equipment and on-site support personnel provided by CASE Construction Equipment. Initial heavy equipment operations included debris removal and home demolition near Rockport and Aransas Pass, Texas, where the eye of Hurricane Harvey made landfall in August. Sonsray Machinery, Inc. of California also shipped compact track loaders in for the operation, and Michelin North America, Inc. donated sets of its Tweel airless radial tires to outfit skid steers working in demolition applications.

“This is the most severe disaster the heavy equipment operators at Team Rubicon have been deployed to since the inception of the equipment operation training program in 2015,” said Scott Harris, vice president — North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “What CASE staff saw in Rockport and surrounding areas were communities coming together to lift each other up and rebuild, and Team Rubicon is there at the forefront. It’s that sense of community and civic responsibility that drove us, and dealers like Sonsray, to step up and join them in Texas.”
