JOHN FABICK TRACTOR COMPANY AND FABCO EQUIPMENT INC. FINALIZE HISTORIC REUNION
Doug Fabick, Dealer Principal of John Fabick Tractor Company (Fabick Cat®), Fenton, St. Louis County, MO, and Jeré Fabick, Dealer Principal of FABCO Equipment Inc., of Milwaukee, WI, successfully finalized the merger of their two family-owned, independently-operated companies on July 1, 2015. Bringing the two Cat dealerships together continues a shared heritage that dates back to 1917 when John Fabick Sr. founded the first Fabick Company in St. Louis.
The expanded organization is being led by Doug Fabick as CEO and Dealer Principal along with Jeré Fabick serving as President and co-Dealer Principal. Headquartered in St. Louis, the combined enterprise operates in a six state region including major portions of Missouri and Illinois, one county each in Kansas and Oklahoma, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the entire state of Wisconsin.
Concurrent with this change, the entire enterprise comes together under a common identity that features the Fabick Cat name. The company’s newly designed logo provides a bold and fresh new look that demonstrates the true sense of the two companies joining forces. This is the beginning of exciting changes that will result from combining the resources and experience of both organizations to create one of the largest and most dynamic Cat dealerships in the nation.
With the merger complete, Fabick Cat capabilities now include more than 1,100 employees including 550 professional service technicians, 37 locations with 200 service bays and a fleet of over 200 service vehicles.
As family-owned businesses spanning five generations, Fabick Cat has a very straightforward philosophy; treat people with respect, focus on building long-term relationships, and always provide superior value. A new chapter in this legacy begins today further strengthening the company motto: “To Ever Serve Our Customers Better.”
