Manufacturing, Innovating and Getting Things Done for Over 94 years


We are proud of the people who make things and make things happen.  

Manufacturing Day 2019 | Celebrating Work That Matters

Manufacturing is at the heart of our company. For more than 90 years, Caterpillar has been providing innovative customer solutions - from the track-type tractor that gave us our Caterpillar name, to the diesel engine, the elevated sprocket, the hybrid excavator and more. Without our worldwide manufacturing employees, none of this would be possible. They touch everything we make that digs, powers, builds, crushes, cuts and operates. Quite simply, it's every product we sell, every service we provide and everything in between.

Throughout the month of October, Caterpillar facilities across the globe are celebrating Manufacturing Day. It’s a chance for us to recognize the people doing work that matters—the builders, the makers, the designers and more. It takes a diverse and talented workforce to do what we do, and we celebrate the women and men who make it all possible.
