Caterpillar Inc. (also known as CAT) is an American corporation that develops, manufactures and sells special equipment: construction equipment, earth-moving machinery, diesel engines, power plants and other products. The headquarters of the corporation since 1986 is located in Illinois, USA. The company has more than 480 divisions located in 50 countries of the world on five continents.
Caterpillar has long been selling its tractors and excavators only through its dealer network. The total turnover of dealers around the world is twice as large as that of Caterpillar itself (in the mid-1990s, $ 27 billion a year versus $ 14 billion).
Partnerships with dealers provided Caterpillar and the main competitive advantage - the ability to replace any part anywhere in the world within 24 hours. In addition, dealers know about the needs of consumers more than Caterpillar, which means that the company significantly saves on marketing research.
At that time, the dealer network included 197 companies, 132 of which operated outside the United States. The average annual income of the company's dealers was $ 150 million, and the total number of employees exceeded 80,000, which is 20,000 more than the number of employees of the company.
