Customers can have peace of mind knowing that all work is done according to manufacturer specifications and that they have trusted professionals on their side for the long run. 

Extensive Dealer Network

With an extensive dealer network and personalized support services, Caterpillar can help take your business to the next level. Following the 1950s construction boom, Caterpillar became a multinational company with equipment offered on every continent, including Antarctica. We offer a vast inventory of new, used and rental equipment and aim to have exactly what you need for your next task. With an extensive network, you can rest easy knowing there’s always a dealer close to you to service your equipment or provide equipment and replacement parts as needed.

  • Cat Payload: This technology lets operators and managers know precisely the material loaded and when and where it went, ensuring you use your loaders and haulers to their fullest capabilities.
  • Cat Detect: Use Cat Detect to stay aware of your surroundings and any items that could come into contact with your machine. You’ll have peace of mind you can look out for personnel and create a safer work environment with this technology. 

Through technological advancements, Caterpillar will continue making strides in delivering safer and more efficient ways to work. Choosing us means having access to innovative solutions to enhance your workspace.
