No matter what your size, the success of your business isn’t about just one thing. It’s a million little things. Deciding whether to own or rent. Getting that part today, not tomorrow. Making the most of every load, and every hour. Plus financing that works for you. With the right support, it all adds up. Your work is personal to you. Peterson Cat feels the same.
Our welding and machine shops combine the art of repair and fabrication to deliver customized solutions for your most demanding projects. Countless prototype models have emerged from our shops over the years: some at the request of customers, others through a combined effort between Peterson and Caterpillar. Many have been patented and have found their way into the Caterpillar product line itself.
Our in-house engineering staff, using AutoCAD's sophisticated computer graphics, can design, simulate and test potential ideas even before a single pattern is laid out to cut. From there, special tooling like the giant Giddings & Lewis boring mill, the 500-ton Pacific Brake Press, the automatic-tracing burning machine, dual ram press, tungsten application machine, and automatic wire welders are used by a crew long-experienced in customer fabrication.
