Cat Magazine - Issue 1 2016

This is the first issue of Cat Magazine for 2016.

The story topics are as diverse as ever and include road building and our company history as well as a spotlight about how the Caterpillar Foundation is helping wildlife in the UK.

One of the stories covers the Caterpillar Industrial Design team and what’s involved in creating the Cat machines of the future. Unquestionably, two important aspects of designing and engineering Cat products are research and development (R&D). They play a big role in developing customer solutions that are innovative, productive, and reliable while helping reduce costs.

I am proud to say that, even during this tough business environment, we are working to push innovation forward. It’s a strategy that will serve us well in the future as we continue to develop products and solutions that help our customers become far more successful.

And, when it comes to success, our main story is about how Cat machines are helping connect two major cities and boost the economy in Bosnia-Herzegovina. You’ll also read about how the unique relationship between the Cat dealer in Ivory Coast and customer MK Construction is proving to be successful. If safety is a priority as it is here at Caterpillar, the story about the effects of operator fatigue is a must read.

This issue is certainly filled with valuable information that is beneficial for customers from all industries.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have.

Nigel Lewis,

Vice President, Caterpillar
