Confetti rained down on the floor of Caterpillar Undercarriage (Xuzhou) Ltd. (CUXL) in late March, marking the grand opening of the CUXL facility in the Jiangsu Province in China. Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman and Vice President with responsibility for Reman, Components and Work Tools Greg Folley attended the event along with dozens of other leaders from Caterpillar and key suppliers and contractors.
With the creation of CUXL, Caterpillar now has 13 facilities manufacturing parts for undercarriage worldwide, serving our customers closer to where they work.
CUXL was established in 2012 to serve the expanding excavator business more efficiently, with CXL (Caterpillar Xuzhou Ltd.) becoming Caterpillar’s largest excavator facility. CUXL has already helped reduced CXL’s transportation costs, and it is expected to help save CXL more than one million dollars this year.
CUXL is now offering a full line of Undercarriage products, ranging from 12 to 49 tons, in China. Our new product introduction projects this year will further support CXL and Caterpillar’s commitment to delivering to our customers. Caterpillar is the very first company that is capable of offering a full line of Undercarriage products in China.
