Altorfer CAT is a Caterpillar dealer with locations in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri.
The company was founded in 1957 by Edward J. Altorfer, who had previously worked in his family’s washing machine business called Altorfer Brothers Company in East Peoria.
Buck Swords, owner of Peoria Tractor and Equipment Company, a Caterpillar dealer, and a good friend of Edward Altorfer, introduced him to the Caterpillar business.
Then known as Altorfer Machinery Company, the business had locations in Cedar Rapids and Davenport, Iowa, and Hannibal, Mo. In 1967, Altorfer expanded when he opened two dealerships in Springfield and Champaign, Ill., which he called Capitol Machinery Company.
Growth continued when in 1973, the company acquired Lift Truck business and Capitol Machinery acquired Peoria Tractor and Equipment. In 1998, both Capitol Machinery and Altorfer Machinery merged under one name, Altorfer Inc.
