Holt CAT held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new ProTech facility location at the company’s San Antonio campus, Texas, 3302 South W.W. White Road.

This new 10,651 sq. ft. facility will be built to silver LEED standards designated by the U.S. Green Building Council. The building will enhance ProTech Trainings’ ability to deliver hands-on technical training and will include four teaching bays and a 2,100 sq. ft. engine troubleshooting lab.

Holt ProTech is the technical training arm of Holt CAT and is a Caterpillar Regional Dealer Learning Center for natural gas engine training and electric power generation training.

This year, in addition to training Holt personnel, Holt ProTech is expected to train more than 1,600 Caterpillar dealer technicians. In past years, technicians from dealerships in North Carolina, California, Ohio, Alabama, Tennessee, Colorado and Canada have participated in ProTech programs. The average length of a technical course is three days with a majority of the Caterpillar-certified courses lasting five days.

Holt CAT expects to complete and open its new ProTech facility this September.

“Holt is investing in this new facility to demonstrate our commitment to providing enhanced service through employee training and development,” said Allyn L. Archer, president and chief operating officer.
