For more than 95 years, Caterpillar products and services have helped improve the lives of people around the world. Our global customers use Cat equipment to build the infrastructure that provides access to water, electricity, roads, bridges, hospitals, schools and so much more. Infrastructure is core to Caterpillar’s businesses. We not only build it, but we also rely on highways, railways, airports, and ports to get inputs to our manufacturing facilities, to get products, parts, and components to our dealers and customers, and to get our employees to and from work safely every day.
In the United States, Caterpillar supported the congressional passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). This legislation provides historic levels of funding to build, repair and upgrade America’s roads and bridges, as well as billions in additional funding for rail, transit, port, waterway, airport and broadband internet infrastructure improvements. A modern and reliable infrastructure system is key to the global competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers. These investments will help the U.S. remain globally competitive – promoting domestic production as well as exports around the world. As a net exporter, Caterpillar believes that an upgrade to U.S. infrastructure will serve its global network of dealers and customers more efficiently.
