Caterpillar Defense: 60 Years of Defending the Future

Formally established in 1959, Caterpillar Defense is the world’s foremost supplier of earthmoving equipment, engines and generators for government agencies and military forces. These reliable and technologically advanced products are used to provide security, generate energy and supply critical aid for millions of people around the globe. In fact, this rich heritage dates all the way back to 1916, with support provided during major conflicts over the last 100 years – including WWI and WWII.

Now through the end of the year, the Caterpillar Visitors Center is taking a historic look back and celebrating the work being done today with our new exhibit, “Caterpillar Defense: 60 Years of Defending the Future.” Through photographs, models, visual storytelling and artifacts you can learn about Caterpillar’s role in supporting missions throughout global military environments, serving all branches of the U.S. military and federal government, as well as allied governments and militaries.
