Author: Amy Volk | Posted: 10/31/2012

Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) is working closely with all of its Cat dealers in mobilizing equipment, personnel and other resources to help the affected areas in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. H.O. Penn has already provided approximately 100MW of portable generator sets to customers in the greater New York City area. Additional portable generator sets are staged in H.O. Penn yards and ready for mobilization as the priorities for use are determined and locations are identified by local authorities. Other Cat dealers across the eastern United States and Canada, including Milton Cat, Foley Inc. and Ransome, are mobilizing and have mobilized hundreds of generators since last week in preparation and response to the storm and are ready to deploy as the hardest-hit areas are identified.
