Circular Economy

Wherever possible, we keep resources in the Caterpillar value chain through a circular flow of materials, energy and water. Our focus on developing better systems optimizes our use of resources, maximizes the total life cycle value of our products and minimizes the cost of ownership for our customers. Viewing our equipment through a total life cycle lens allows us to make sustainable progress for communities, the environment and the economy. 

Caterpillar strives to provide customers with quality equipment that provides the best economic proposition for their business. Our remanufacturing (reman) and rebuild businesses provide customers not only with an immediate cost savings, but also help extend life cycles and use materials more efficiently.

Remanufactured Products and Rebuilt Products

The Caterpillar Sustainable Solutions, Solar Turbines and Progress Rail Services remanufacturing programs provide customers with lower-cost products, shorter downtime and quick, dependable service options.

Rebuild programs increase the lifespan of equipment by providing customers with product updates for a fraction of the cost of buying a new machine. Rebuild programs include Cat® Certified Rebuilds, component overhauls at Cat® dealers, Solar Turbines rebuilds and Progress Rail Services rebuilds. A complete Cat Certified Rebuild includes more than 350 tests and inspections, automatic replacement of approximately 7,000 parts and a like-new machine warranty. In addition, trained dealer service professionals perform this work using genuine equipment and parts. Caterpillar provides information, data, training and service tools to help dealers make the most appropriate decisions on which parts to reuse in order to achieve expected longevity of rebuilt components. Reuse of components helps us use materials and energy more efficiently.

The remanufacturing and rebuild programs allow customers to maximize the built-in value of their equipment by:

  • Ensuring maximum productivity
  • Increasing reliability and equipment uptime
  • Ensuring cost-effective performance
  • Receiving a like-new warranty
  • Increasing the customer’s return on their investment
  • Providing the customer with a variety of repair options to meet their service needs
  • Providing the customer with a higher resale value
  • Providing the lowest total owning and operating life cycle costs
  • Preserving the majority of energy and materials required to make the original component or machine
