Caterpillar has been a part of Mexico’s growth since one of our predecessor company, the Holt Manufacturing Company, sold its first product in Mexico in 1897. Together with our local Cat® dealers, we support customers in numerous applications including mining and agriculture.
Caterpillar opened the first facility in Mexico in 1962. Today, our Mexico facilities include parts distribution, remanufacturing, components and manufacturing operations in mining, general construction, road construction, oil and gas and power applications.
