Our Story.

A century ago two men joined forces to move the earth.

In 1925 Benjamin Holt signed a deal with C.L. Best,
and merged two great manufacturing companies into a single
powerhouse- Caterpillar Tractor Co.

Suddenly, after years of fierce competition and endless patent
races, two of the largest tractor manufacturers in
the world had united for the same goal-
prove the impossible possible.

Together, these inventive minds created
equipment with the power to transform the world,
completely reshaping the construction, farming,
and mining industries. And when people didn’t
think their ambitions were possible, they proved
them wrong.

Patent after patent, Holt & Best
took risks and broke rules, paving the path of
progress and building the world as we know it.
