Caterpillar - Statistics & Facts

Caterpillar Inc. is the world’s leading construction and mining equipment maker. The company was originally established in 1925 with the merger of the Hold Manufacturing Company along with the C.L. Best Tractor Company, effectively creating the Caterpillar Tractor Company. Although founded in California, the company is now headquartered in Deerfield, Illinois. Caterpillar's commanding position among construction equipment manufacturers is challenged by the likes of Komatsu, Terex, and John Deere.

In its 2018 fiscal year, the manufacturing giant reported global sales and revenue streams of around 54.7 billion U.S. dollars. Along with reaching peak sales in 2012, the company’s workforce increased to almost 128,000 employees worldwide in that same year. However, since then the company has downsized its workforce to around 101,500 employees in 2018. Sales have sharply declined during that same period with a slight resurgence in the 2017 and 2018 fiscal years.
