Caterpillar’s remanufacturing and rebuild operations have provided customers with quality equipment that helps deliver lower owning and operating costs.
Our engineering and manufacturing expertise, field population and dealer organization make it possible for us to offer remanufactured products and components through many of our brands and rebuild options through our dealers.
Remanufacturing and rebuild options deliver multiple sustainability benefits and help Caterpillar contribute to the circular economy. Through these activities, we recycle millions of pounds of end-of-life products annually. Because we are in the business of returning end-of-life components to like-new condition, we reduce waste and minimize the need for raw material, energy and water associated with producing new parts. Through remanufacturing, we contribute to sustainable development — extending the value of the energy and water consumed in a component’s original manufacture and keeping high-value nonrenewable resources in circulation for multiple lifecycles. The company’s enterprise strategy focused heavily on increasing services that offer superior customer value. With steady customer demand for remanufacturing products and components, we are well-positioned to help achieve this enterprise goal. Reducing waste through remanufacturing and rebuilding can provide benefits to the environment, customers and the enterprise.
Increase sales and revenues from remanufacturing offerings by 25% from 2018 to 2030.

Caterpillar machines and components are built to last. They are designed to withstand heavy-duty operating conditions and to be restored and used for multiple lifecycles.
Designing products and components to be used throughout multiple service lifecycles is the essence of our remanufacturing approach, which takes many different forms across our brands.
