Purpose

Our Solutions Help Our Customers Build a Better World

At Caterpillar, we take pride in what we do and what we make possible – from the quality of our products and services to the people who stand behind them. But what matters to us most is how we help customers build a better world.

For more than 90 years, along with our customers, we’ve helped make the world a better place to live. And it’s surprising how much the world has changed during that time. From providing power that brought Neil Armstrong’s first words from the moon, to protecting more than 11,000 miles of the world’s greatest rivers, to building the Panama Canal and more. We’ve taken a place in history alongside our dealers and customers.

 A lot has changed since the Caterpillar Tractor Co. was born. And as the world continues to spin, changes seem to happen faster than ever. There will always be work to do. We’ll be there helping our customers make the planet a safer, more sustainable and better place to live.
