Ours is a company founded and built on breakthroughs. The Caterpillar name was born when Benjamin Holt replaced the wheels on a tractor with a pair of tracks that moved like caterpillars — and we’ve been finding creative ways to solve problems every day since. It’s not just about being leading edge. It’s about giving our customers an edge. Innovation has always been our competitive advantage. And sustainable innovation is what will drive us forward.
From that first tractor on tracks to the world’s first mass-produced diesel engine, we’ve always been ahead of the curve. Did you know we launched our first remote-controlled machine back in 1968? Or that we have 2.5 times more experience in autonomy than any car manufacturer? Innovation is in our DNA. It’s how we make equipment safer, cleaner and smarter — and how we make our customers’ lives easier and their businesses more profitable.
