Caterpillar

 

We are keen to exhibit at Bring It On to support local students with career guidance – the range of routes available to them e.g. apprenticeships, degree routes and also to demonstrate the range of roles in manufacturing and engineering as well as to promote STEM subjects.

In its 40-year history in Peterlee, the facility has continued to expand to its current campus. The 50-acre site is the single source of articulated trucks producing 12 variants ranging from a 26-ton payload 725C machine to a 45-ton payload 745C machine ejector models are also available.

The facility located in Peterlee, County Durham, UK has a rich history from Roman times to the industrial revolution of the 17th Century. The area is most known for its industrial heritage of coal mining, shipbuilding, and iron and steel production.

The articulated truck was founded as a family business in 1972 by David John Brown who developed the original concept; the facility became a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar in 1996.

Over 90 percent of production from Peterlee is exported around the world.

We want to promote engineering and STEM, increase awareness of the opportunities in the North East and help reduce the skills gap. Raise awareness of the routes into engineering and manufacturing, particularly apprenticeships.
