Caterpillar History

Caterpillar began in the early 1900s when Benjamin Holt developed tracks to keep tractors from sinking into soft soil.

In 1909, Holt sold his first “caterpillar”, a name which was inspired by a photographer.

In 1910, Holt opened a factory in East Peoria, Illinois.  The company headquarters remains there today.

The tractors were utilized heavily in World War I but the end of the war left the company with excess inventory which was too heavy duty for farm use.

Benjamin Holt died in 1920.

In 1925, Holt Caterpillar merged with C.L. Best to form the Caterpillar Tractor Company.

In 1986, the company name was changed to Caterpillar Inc.

In 1999, the company built a factory in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Today, Caterpillar is the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment.

I worked for caterpillar forest products in lagrange, ga. for 10 mths. I loved my job until I started being targeted after breaking my finger. even with a broken finger I finished my shift and came right back to work after having it splinted. then came the problems, I started getting written up for weld quality….. issues that other welders have made but were not written up for. I was even written up for weld quality on a repair that I haven’t even finished before being written up. then they terminate my employment and lock me out of the cws system so that now I cant even get my pay stubs that are required for my special needs daughters ssi case worker. I used to be a big supporter of caterpillar and loved the company but after this treatment I will never fill that way again!!!!!

Watch out working for this company in Arkansas! They have no AWFUL security and only 2 cameras and they allow people to come on to their “public parking” lot and steal an employees trailer and all their equipment. And their response is “we can’t help you, there’s nothing we can do”!!! What a shady company to work for that will not even post a picture of the Silver dodge truck that stole it. But they sure brag about all the money they save. My husband works his tail off to make ends meet and this company just blew him off.

I just read an article about Caterpillar banking 85% of their assets in Switzerland in order to avoid paying 2.4 billion in taxes in the US. Here on this page you proudly post your history. You make high quality equipment, you have a proud American history… what a shameful way for you to conduct your business. Paying your fair share to the country that helped make you who you are is the honorable way to pay into the system. I am so sorry that you allowed greed to overtake your financial integrity.
