New Holland Lends Helping Hand in Flood-Stricken Iowa

New Holland Provides Equipment Support to Green Bay Levee and Drainage District

CAROL STREAM, IL--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - New Holland Construction is contributing to the Iowa flood relief efforts by providing equipment for the levee fortification and clean up operations. The D95B dozer and M428 telehandler loaned by the manufacturer have been hard at work since their arrival last week.

"New Holland has a particularly close connection with Iowa, and especially Burlington, where one of our key manufacturing plants is based," said Edgar J. Chavez, New Holland Construction Marketing Director. "It is important to us to support this community at such a difficult time and contribute to the relief operations."

The D95B dozer, produced in the manufacturer's plant in Calhoun, Georgia, is helping the levee fortification works in the Green Bay Levee and Drainage District, while the M428 telehandler is greatly appreciated in the clean up operations, where the lift capacity and reach is making it possible to limit further damages by lifting building debris and trees.
