Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas partnered with First Choice Farm & Lawn, a Hyundai dealer headquartered in Union City, Tennessee, to assist with tornado cleanup efforts in nearby Samburg, Tennessee.

According to Hyundai, Samburg suffered heavy tornado damage from the same series of December storms that left devastation across six states and killed dozens of people in neighboring Kentucky.

First Choice helped coordinate the cleanup effort, calling on customers and staff and deploying three Hyundai excavators to the area. Hyundai covered the cost of shipping the excavators and sent Ed Harseim, the company’s North Central sales manager, to aid in the cleanup.

“We have locations in Kentucky and Tennessee,” says Ron Parks, owner of First Choice Farm & Lawn. “Many of our customers were affected by the tornadoes, and one of our employees and their parents lost their homes in Caycee, Kentucky, so this is personal. We are glad to be able to do what we can to help, and we appreciate Hyundai’s support.”
