CASE Dealer Border Equipment Provides Two CTLs to Help Team Rubicon with Patriot South National Training Exercise

CASE Construction Equipment dealer Border Equipment recently provided Team Rubicon with a pair of s equipped with grapple buckets as the organization participated in the national, multi-agency Patriot South training operation. The Savannah, Georgia-based operation focused on disaster response coordination between organizations like Team Rubicon and local, state and federal agencies.
During the exercise at Oatland Island Wildlife Refuge, which was hit by an EF-1 tornado last July, participants from Team Rubicon converged with Air and Army National Guard units from across the country in simulated natural disaster recovery and response. The CASE TR270 compact track loaders were used for debris removal, demolition, and home repair scenarios.
“These training missions are part of what makes Team Rubicon great at what they do, and why they’re relied on as a trusted partner by national and international agencies when disaster strikes,” said Michel Marchand, vice president – North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “We appreciate the team at Border Equipment for providing the CTLs that helped make the operation a success.”
Overall, roughly 70 Team Rubicon members participated in the operations, which included using the CASE TR270s to clear brush, storm-damaged trees, and to create an access road and walking trail to the site.

CASE Dealer ASCO Donates Equipment to Help Team Rubicon and SBP Rebuild Home Devastated by Fire, Hurricane Harvey Flooding

CASE Construction Equipment dealer ASCO, Lubbock, Texas recently provided a TR310 compact track loader and CX130D excavator to disaster recovery nonprofits Team Rubicon and project leader SBP. The equipment was used for demolition work before SBP could rebuild a Houston home that first was burnt to the ground then flooded during Hurricane Harvey.
Asha Ramraj and her husband first purchased the home in 2002. Together with their children, the Ramraj’s worked on making it a home. Years later, in 2015 the home burned to the ground, leaving only the laundry room intact. Ramraj’s husband passed away shortly after, leaving her alone to shoulder the burden of rebuilding while she lived in what remained of her home. Then in 2017, what was left of the Ramraj’s home was flooded during Hurricane Harvey.
“CASE Construction and ASCO were eager to work with Team Rubicon to support SBP in helping get this home rebuild off to a good start in any way we could,” said Michel Marchand, vice president – North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “The resiliency of Ms. Ramraj in the face of continued hardship is truly incredible, and ASCO was ready to help immediately.”
Team Rubicon collaborated with SBP, another disaster recovery nonprofit, with the demolition of the home, which would have set back SBP’s budget considerably. SBP plans to complete construction of the home in the coming months.
“Here was this insanely resilient woman who had been through so much,” said Cli Roberts, executive director of SBP’s Houston operation. “We desperately wanted to help her get her home back. I don’t know how we would have could have done it without help from Team Rubicon, CASE and ASCO.”

CASE Celebrates 50 Years of Skid Steer Manufacturing

CASE Construction Equipment celebrated 50 years of skid steer manufacturing with a ceremony on Wednesday, April 3rd at its Wichita, Kansas plant. CASE first built skid steers in 1969 at its Burlington, Iowa facility, before eventually moving production to Wichita.

“Skid steers completely transformed the construction equipment landscape, and CASE has played a leading role in the evolution and development of this product category throughout the last 50 years,” says Michel Marchand, vice president — North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “These machines reflect every bit of our heritage from construction to agriculture, and we are committed to helping our customers build strong communities and businesses with the help of CASE skid steers built here in the U.S.A.”

Global CASE and CNH Industrial leaders Carl Gustaf Göransson (president of construction, CNH Industrial), Larry Bryce (chief operating officer of construction equipment, CNH Industrial) and Marchand were on-hand to mark the milestone, as were local CASE employees and members of the manufacturer’s Dealer Advisory Board. The event was hosted by Mike Peterson, plant manager, CNH Wichita.

CASE skid steers and compact track loaders (CTL) are made “For the World” in Wichita — meaning that every CASE skid steer or CTL sold and operated anywhere in the world today comes from Wichita. The plant is designated at the “Silver Level” for World Class Manufacturing (WCM), one of the global manufacturing industry’s highest standards for the integrated management of manufacturing plants and processes.
