Manufacturing at Caterpillar: It’s every product we sell, every service we provide and everything in between

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 hybrid excavator and more. The products we manufacture are used across the world to pave roads, build schools, provide water and so much more. Click here to watch a video about Caterpillar manufacturing.

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 as part of Manufacturing Day 2018.

Unfortunately, many people don’t understand what today’s manufacturing really looks like. But we’re set out to change that. Manufacturing is not dark, dirty and outdated – it’s sleek, modern and innovative with highly skilled employees using advanced technologies in fields such as engineering, technology development, logistics and manufacturing. It’s a safe place where continuous improvement thrives and caring for the environment is a top priority.
