Combining Today’s Work with the Past
About the Archives
Not every job at Caterpillar is focused on the production line or set in an office environment. Our archives collection is stored a climate-controlled space which hosts years of Caterpillar history, artifacts, equipment and memorabilia.
- Caterpillar Archives was established in the 1950s during the publication of a corporate history book titled, “Fifty Years on Tracks.”
- Renamed Corporate Heritage Services in 2015 to better reflect the value that the department adds back to the business.
- 13,000 square ft. state of the art archives in Mossville, IL
- The team’s motto: “Artifacts tell great stories, and great stories inspire.”
