One of the world's top 500 enterprises, Caterpillar is the largest manufacturer of earthmoving machines as well as construction and mining equipment in the world. After this new proving ground is opened, it will strengthen research and development capabilities, shorten new product development cycles, and the company will be better positioned to support its growing customer base in China.
