The Mustang Cat® Rental Store in Houston, Texas, introduced a distinctive new addition to their rental fleet in March. The newly added Cat 320E RR track excavator is outfitted with an urban camouflage wrap in Caterpillar corporate yellow and badging. This machine delivers for customers – and Mustang Rental Services donates 20 percent of the gross rental revenue generated by this machine to the Camp Hope Foundation, a non-profit, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) foundation benefitting U.S. military veterans.
Mustang Rental Services saw a unique opportunity to partner with G.R. Birdwell Construction, a contractor in Houston, Texas. Gene Birdwell, owner of the company, founded the PTSD Foundation of America. In addition to the donated revenues, the Cat 320E RR urban camouflage excavator has driven awareness across the City of Houston and within the construction community.
Mustang Cat is honored to support our veterans and bring awareness to a wonderful organization, and Caterpillar is proud of Mustang Cat – and local dealers from around the world – for giving back to their community.
