CATERPILLAR EXITS ON-HIGHWAY TRUCK BUSINESS

Posted: April 26, 2016 in Kenworth

CATERPILLAR is discontinuing production of on-highway trucks.  In 2011, CAT, in conjunction with NAVISTAR, started manufacturing vocational trucks for the on-highway market.  While CAT has discontinued production, they will continue to support the trucks currently on the road.  CAT was intending to produce trucks at a plant in Victoria, Texas.  CAT officials say the timing of the decision was right as starting production and stopping later would have been more difficult.
