Caterpillar has been building the world's infrastructure for over 80 years as the leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines. But beyond this, the organisation has established itself as a technology leader in construction, transportation, mining, forestry, energy, logistics, electronics, financing and electric power generation.
Operating from 50 countries around the globe, the Caterpillar brand has developed into a symbol of strength, respect, and integrity. The organisation has a clear vision to be the global leader in providing customer value in the markets in which it operates. Underpinning all this is a real commitment to social and environmental responsibility, which is upheld by all 101,000 employees. In fact, Caterpillar is convinced that it is their people who drive the business - they are constantly looking for ways in which they can grow profitably through sustainable progress.
