Fabick Cat celebrated its 100th anniversary by donating $600,000 to six St. Louis-based charities.

In celebration of Fabick Cat’s centennial anniversary, Fabick Cat, along with the Fabick Charitable Trust, surprised six St. Louis-based charitable partners with $100,000 donation checks. Each donation commemorated Fabick’s 100 years of operation.

The organizations that received the donations include The Masters, Boy Scouts Greater St. Louis Area Council, the St. Louis Police Foundation, Wings of Hope and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.

“For 100 years, Fabick Cat has supplied equipment and services that help make progress possible and improve the quality of life in our communities,” said Doug Fabick, CEO of Fabick Cat. “Since 1917, our motto has always been ‘to ever serve our customers better.’ To this day, these words remain the foundation of our success.”
