Fourth Generation Caterpillar Employee “Builds it How He Wants to Buy it”

Growing up, Tyler Craig’s father asked him where he wanted to work after graduation, and for Craig, the answer was simple. After watching four generations of his family work for Caterpillar, he decided to follow tradition and accept a position at Caterpillar as an Assembly Team Lead.

Fueled by family legacy, Craig says that “doing the work” at Caterpillar is all about tradition, and for him says that translates to building quality products, which is what he believes customers think of when they see a Caterpillar machine.

“It’s a family tradition. I wanted to build quality products and I can do that here.”

Craig says he enjoys a career in manufacturing because it allows him to work with his hands and put his best foot forward to make products with quality. “When I come to work, I build it how I would want to buy it.” It is that mentality, coupled by working with a great team, that Craig says drives him to work harder each day.
