Caterpillar information and performance
Caterpillar designs and develops heavy equipment, financial services and insurance products. The company sells construction and mining equipment, diesel and gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. Caterpillar also produces its own line of workwear.
The company’s assets are worth $ 89 billion. Every year, the Fortune business magazine includes Caterpillar in its main ranking – Fortune 500: in 2014, the corporation got on the 59th line of the list of American companies and 159th line of the international ones.
The history of the company began in 1890. Then the tractors worked on steam and weighed half a ton – such machines could not work at full strength, because they fell into soft wet soil and skidded. Benjamin Holt, the founder of the company, tried to solve the problem in different ways, but none of the ideas worked. Holt went through the options and found a solution: he wrapped the wheels with planks fastened with bolts and chains – the usual caterpillar. The company was named after the invention.
