Doosan Portable Power participated in the first-ever benefit auction at the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) held from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 in Louisville, Ky. The company donated a C185G portable air compressor, which received a top bid of $7,500.
The winning bid was placed by John Lindeman, owner of Aquaman Irrigation, a lawn and landscape irrigation business based in South Lyon, Mich. The C185G received the highest bid amount of all the items at the auction. In total, the auction raised $29,575 for the Call of Duty Endowment, an organization that helps connect military veterans with job opportunities — including employment in the construction and utility sectors.
“Being part of the ICUEE benefit auction is a win for all involved,” says Mike Ballweber, president of Doosan Portable Power. “Military veterans need good jobs, and the construction industry needs good workers. Plus, Aquaman Irrigation gets a reliable air compressor to help its business.”
