The Importance of Infrastructure

Throughout history, Caterpillar machines have played an integral part in huge infrastructure projects across the world, including the Hoover Dam, Panama Canal expansion, Suez Canal expansion, South Korea’s Saemangeum Seawall, India’s Nagarjuna Sagar Dam, China’s Three Gorges Dam, Kansai International Airport in Japan, Yacyreta Dam in South America and countless other important endeavors. Venturing into space, Caterpillar engines even supplied power for the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969! 

Not only do we manufacture the products that build the roads, bridges, airports and canals, but we also depend on them to move our products around the world. Transportation infrastructure plays an important role in how Caterpillar does business, and we are committed to improving transportation infrastructure across the globe.
