The History of Caterpillar

Based in Peoria, Illinois, Caterpillar has consistently ranked as one of the largest brands worldwide. The brand made famous by their heavy duty tracked vehicles has made sustained progress, helping to inspire change in every continent on the planet. Caterpillar Inc was even involved with man’s first voyage into space in 1969 and the successful landing on the moon. Cat supplied the communications power for this exploration on the Apollo 11 spacecraft and NASA has subsequently used Cat for communications power on all of their subsequent space stations.
