The rapid development of the world's emerging markets is driving an increasing need for mined commodities, as billions of people around the world seek to improve their standards of living.
Caterpillar is engaged in the mining industry at every level, working alongside customers to help them mine efficiently and productively while protecting the health and safety of miners.
In 2011, Caterpillar completed the acquisition of Bucyrus International, Inc., expanding its leadership and support for customers in the mining industry. The acquisition enables Caterpillar to offer the broadest range of surface and underground mining products and solutions to customers in the industry and to help those customers to become even more efficient.
