Caterpillar Manufacturing

Caterpillar Manufacturing

Caterpillar is a gold level sponsor of the 2012 Oregon Logging Conference, held February 23-25, at the Lane County Convention Center and fairgrounds in Eugene, Ore.

The company will not only be sponsoring the  opening session breakfast on the 23rd, but the keynote speaker will be none other than Cat’s Vice President, Diversified Production Division, William E. Springer.

The machines
The “must see” though is Caterpillar’s outside display area. Like in years past, Cat will be featuring some of its newest and technically advanced forestry equipment. Talented staff — sometimes people who were actually involved in the development of the machinery — will be on hand to answer any questions.

Quality Production
Caterpillar continues to strive for ever better efficiency and responsiveness. It says it’s applying the principles of the Caterpillar Production System (CPS) across the global manufacturing base. “The goal is one production process worldwide. We’re deploying best practices, standard processes and cultural changes to improve safety, quality, velocity and cost. CPS permits us to build products more efficiently and meet delivery dates more consistently. It allows us to be more responsive from the time an order is placed until the product is delivered.”

Caterpillar is just one of many companies exhibiting at this year’s OLC. If you haven’t taken time yet to register, don’t wait. Click HERE. At just $94, it’s one of the best investments you’ll make in 2012.
