Advanced Solutions to Meet
Customers’ Toughest Challenges

Cat® machines and technologies operate in some of the toughest environments on Earth – from the deserts of Australia to the oil sands of Canada, from 4,500 meters above sea level to nearly a mile underground. Today, more than 80,000 machines provided by the Resource Industries segment work around the clock in mines and quarries to meet the world’s need for mined materials. As population growth continues and the demand for energy, infrastructure, transportation and household goods increases, we expect the demand for our products to increase as well.
