Celebrating Our Manufacturing Heritage

October 16, 2018

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.
