A new equipment rental business will open in Cape Girardeau. Fabick Rents, a division of Fabick CAT will open a new branch facility at 2050 Southern Expressway in Cape Girardeau. Tom Kelsey, broker with Lorimont Commercial Real Estate, handled the real estate transaction with the St. Louis based company. Fabick has 36 locations and 1,200 employees in four states. The heavy equipment dealer has had a new and used equipment sales and service CAT location at 3033 Nash Road for several years and that location and operation will not change. The newest Cape location will handle primarily rental equipment including CAT machines such as skid steer loaders, excavators, dozers, compactors, wheel loaders, and telehandlers as well as a full line of aerial lifts, generators, trailers, and miscellaneous other large and small equipment. Kelsey said the company has been involved in remodeling the Cape location for the last several months and expects to open very soon. The company has celebrated it’s 100th anniversary and is family owned and operated throughout the Midwest states. The new Cape location was the former location of United Rentals, which relocated to the East I-55 Outer Road across from the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport.
