Construction on the 600,000-square-foot facility will begin in September, and once complete, the manufacturing operation will triple the company's current capacity of hydraulic excavators.

Caterpillar saw sales and revenues of $32.4 billion during 2009, making the company the leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, and industrial gas turbines in the world.
