Our Story

In 1925, Benjamin Holt and C.L. Best merged two of the greatest manufacturing companies to create the Caterpillar Tractor Co.

Stronger together, their innovative mindsets built equipment that moved the earth and transformed the modern skyline. Almost a century later, the brand continues to prove the impossible is possible.

We come from a world of possibility, where industriousness and curiosity fuel the opportunity we see around us. A world where we can put in the effort, commit to the hard work, and turn challenges into more meaningful solutions.

We believe the best brands are those led by purpose, something more powerful than any single product. Holt and Best connected through a shared goal to help people build a better world — active participants, not observers.
