Visiting the Cat Mining Team in Tucson, Arizona | Beyond the Numbers

April 30, 2019

In this first-quarter 2019 edition of Beyond the Numbers, Caterpillar CFO Andrew Bonfield heads to the Arizona desert to spend some quality time at the Tinaja Hills Demonstration & Learning Center and Tucson Proving Ground. Andrew takes us along as he learns how technology is positively changing the game for our customers when it comes to products and services – especially in the mining industry.
