Tractor & Equipment Co. (“T&E”) announced today that they have acquired the expanded Cat Mining equipment distribution and support business for its territories from Caterpillar Global Mining LLC. T&E is the authorized Cat dealer in central and eastern Montana, western North Dakota, and northern Wyoming.

John W. Harnish, T&E’s Vice President of Product Support, stated, “Stability and world-class customer service will remain our top priorities through this transition. This is a significant step forward in helping our mining customers succeed as we leverage the synergies created by representing the full spectrum of mining products, service, and support in our territory.”

Tractor & Equipment Co. assumed responsibility for the sales, marketing and product support of the expanded Cat mining products, which includes Draglines, Unit Rig mining trucks, Room & Pillar and Longwall equipment, Electric Rope and Hydraulic Shovels, Highwall Miners, Drills, Belt Systems and various other lines of support equipment.
