New Holland Super Boom Road Show Events Benefit Red Cross

In celebration of the launch of the new 200 Series skid steer loaders and compact track loaders, New Holland Construction sponsored a year-long series of Super Boom Road Show events across North America in 2011. These events, held at more than 30 New Holland dealerships, also provided fundraising and volunteer opportunities with local chapters of the American Red Cross and the Canadian Red Cross. As part of the world’s largest humanitarian organization, the Red Cross works to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found.

“New Holland Construction is in a unique position to support the efforts of local Red Cross chapters across the United States and Canada,” said December, marketing manager at New Holland Construction. “The Super Boom Road Shows gave New Holland Construction dealers and customers an opportunity to make a difference in their communities – in addition to the causes they currently support.”

The partnership with the Red Cross began at the 2011 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show in Las Vegas in March, where New Holland Construction presented a $2,500 donation to the American Red Cross Southern Nevada Chapter to kick-off the Super Boom Road Show program. New Holland Construction dealers and customers have showed continued support with the Super Boom Road Show events. At each event, local Red Cross chapter representatives were on site to generate awareness of local activities and recruit volunteers.

New Holland Construction also made a $500 contribution to each Red Cross chapter that participated in the Super Boom Road Show events.

“On behalf of New Holland Construction, I’m pleased to announce that, to date, New Holland Construction and our dealers have donated more than $29,000 to the Red Cross through the Super Boom Road Show events in the United States and Canada,” December said.

New Holland Construction will also be donating the net proceeds from the auction of two limited edition 200 Series skid steer loaders to the American Red Cross. The special auction begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011, with a minimum starting bid of US$50,000.00 for the “Cruis’n” L220 skid steer loader and US$58,000.00 for the “Big Blue” L230 skid steer loader. The auction closes at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011. The top three bidders will be contacted on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011, and will have 24 hours to enter another bid. The winning bidders of the two limited edition models will be notified on Monday, Nov. 7, 2011.

Jim Hasler, vice president of CNH Construction, North America, today joined other industry executives in briefing senior members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on the importance of long-term infrastructure funding to support America’s global competitiveness.

CNH Construction is a global manufacturer of construction equipment, with the industry leading brands Case Construction Equipment, New Holland Construction and Kobelco America.

In briefings arranged by the Organization for International Investment, Hasler and his industry colleagues met individually with Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), transportation and infrastructure committee chairman; Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), ranking member of the committee; Rep. John Duncan (R-Tenn.), chairman of the subcommittee on highways and transit; and Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), House assistant minority leader.

“It was important for CNH Construction to voice our support of the Chairman’s goal of prioritizing a long-term comprehensive infrastructure strategy that addresses sufficient funding and certainty in the market,” Hasler said“CNH applauds Chairman Mica’s leadership to complete a six-year highway bill by Memorial Day,” Hasler continued.

contributor to the U.S. economy and substantially impacts the economy of every state and congressional district.

“At CNH Construction, we believe the nation urgently requires long-term infrastructure funding solutions,” Hasler said. He cited research showing that investment in the nation’s highways, bridges, water and transit infrastructure creates 18,000 jobs for every $1 billion spent.

Moreover, Hasler emphasized that infrastructure investment is critical to America’s ability to compete globally. “America can

leave no options unexamined, and no alternatives unexplored as we search for and implement solutions to our important infrastructure needs. Our future competitiveness demands nothing less.”

Hasler said today’s meetings with representatives from both sides of the aisle may help coalesce bipartisan support for investment in our nation’s infrastructure, resulting in jobs and economic growth.
