RACINE, Wis. - (June 27, 2008) - In light of the devastating floods battering parts of America's Grain Belt, Case IH and its dealers are poised to lend a hand and some financial support. "If you farm in one of the many flooded counties declared a federal disaster area, we want to ease your burden and get you back in your fields," says John Koetz, Case IH senior director of marketing.
In cooperation with its financial services partner, CNH Capital, Case IH will work with affected producers, where possible, to revise existing payment plans, or to replace flood-damaged equipment and provide special financing.
"We understand the hardships you're facing, and the enormity of this situation, and we want to help. If you're a Case IH customer who's currently financing equipment with CNH Capital and anticipate problems making your next scheduled payment(s), see your local Case IH dealer to discuss your situation," Koetz adds. "We will work to help you through this difficult time.
"If flood damage has forced you to replace lost equipment with new machinery, Case IH can help you here, too," Koetz continues. "We're offering special financing to qualifying customers who live in flood disaster areas, allowing you to get the equipment you need now and not be forced to wait for the insurance check. Your Case IH dealer will have all the details."
Case IH Parts & Service and CNH Capital are also offering extended financing terms. "Many producers are going to need replacement parts to get equipment in shape now, and we want to help make that happen," says Eric Bippus, CNH vice president of sales & marketing for parts and service. "Again, ask your Case IH dealer for more details on how we can help you get back in the field."
According to Koetz, "At Case IH, we want producers free to focus on what's most important - caring for your family, rebuilding your home, and your operation. Now's the time to recover, rebound and replant."
