The story of Whayne Cat is the story of over a century of success. In 1913 a young businessman by the name of Roy C. Whayne decided to take advantage of the boom in the Louisville economy. The Roy C. Whayne Company was born.
In 1915, Roy’s brother Harry joined the company. A major move came in 1920 when Whayne came to represent Holt Manufacturing’s track equipment. When Holt joined with C.L. Best Company, Caterpillar was created. Thus began one of the strongest dealer/manufacturer relationships in the business.
The years between the Depression and the end of World War II saw both challenges and opportunities for the company. While the Depression necessitated not a small number of belt-tightening measures, New Deal Construction projects certainly provided a boon for the company. As the country was dragged into the Second World War, Whayne Supply became a very successful distribution firm.
The post-war period was one of expansion. The end of the war brought with it a construction boom and during this time Whayne Cat opened multiple new branches in Kentucky. The 60’s and 70’s saw the company weather many challenges, including the economic crisis of the mid 70’s, which required the company to employ a variety of cost-cutting measures. Whayne Cat took these challenges on in stride, and went into the 21st century positioned as a global player.
Today, Whayne Cat’s success is rooted in a century old tradition of hard work and dedication.
