12, 2011 FIRE DESTROYS CAZENOVIA EQUIPMENT COMPANY HEADQUARTERS Nelson, NY -- A fire raged through the headquarters of Cazenovia Equipment Company last night and into this morning. The John Deere Dealership’s main showroom, located at 3200 U.S. Route 20 in the Madison County town of Nelson, was completely destroyed. According to company CEOS and co-owners Jim and Mike Frazee, the location is the headquarters for nine other Cazenovia Equipment retail outlets throughout Central and Northern New York. The brothers spoke briefly of the devastation, “This year marks the fiftieth year anniversary of Cazenovia Equipment, and it all started right here in Cazenovia, New York. My family and the larger family of Cazenovia Equipment have endured hardships and shall continue to do so. We are thankful that no employees were injured.” The company’s phone system was destroyed in the blaze affecting local telephone communication to stores located in Chittenango, Cortland, Clinton, Herkimer, Oneonta, Lafayette, Lowville, Sandy Creek and Watertown. An emergency phone directory has been posted to aid customers with questions and concerns at the company website, www.cazenoviaequipment.com. “We hope to restore the communications system as soon as possible and would like to encourage vendors and non critical inquiries to be forwarded by email if possible,” said Jim Frazee. A list of email addresses for various departments and direct phone numbers for key customer service team members was also posted at the company’s website. The company has also created a Facebook page where customers can get updates on the disaster, as well as post questions or reach out for assistance.
