PEORIA, IL – Caterpillar has withdrawn from the on-highway vocational truck market, saying that “the current business climate” has led to a restructuring of the company, which has been a player in the market since 2011.
In a statement Friday, Caterpillar said the move will impact approximately 70 positions, with the staff reductions beginning in March and continuing over a period of time.
In 2015, the company announced its intention to begin independently designing and manufacturing its vocational truck products at the Caterpillar plant in Texas. That new venture had yet to take flight, and the plan will now be grounded, the company said.
“Remaining a viable competitor in this market would require significant additional investment to develop and launch a complete portfolio of trucks, and upon an updated review, we determined there was not a sufficient market opportunity to justify the investment,” said Ramin Younessi, Caterpillar’s VP of Industrial Power Systems Division. “We have not yet started truck production in Victoria, and this decision allows us to exit this business before the transition occurs,” added Younessi.
Caterpillar announced in 2008 that it was exiting the on-highway engine business.
The company will cease taking new orders for vocational trucks, but says it remains committed to existing truck customers and will support trucks currently on the road.
