VIDEO: Milton Cat Hosts Grand Opening Event in North Syracuse

Thu November 16, 2023 - Northeast Edition #24

The campus includes a 30,000-sq.-ft. service shop with more than 20 technicians on staff and 24 bays equipped with the necessary tools for a wide range of service and repair tasks.

Each VLM has 103 trays (618 in total) and allows for the storage of 17,000 parts; twice the old warehouse capacity. The parts are stored on revolving racks that come down as needed when a part is to be picked.

(CEG photo) The shop has nine cranes — three are 2.5 ton, one is 25 ton, four are 10-ton and one is 15 ton. The 25-ton and 10-ton cranes can work together for a 35-ton lift capacity.

All oil is filtered three times before entering a machine and each reel has a metering system that tracks how much oil goes into each machine to assure that each customer is charged only for the oil their machine consumes.

On Oct. 27 and 28, Milton Cat held a grand opening event at its new spacious 100,000-sq.-ft. facility located at 7309 Eastman Road in North Syracuse, N.Y. Over two days, more than 700 people enjoyed Milton Cat's hospitality and tours of the Caterpillar dealership.

The campus includes a 30,000-sq.-ft. service shop with 24 well-equipped bays, which are serviced by nine overhead cranes that have the ability to lift up to 35 tons. A separate facility houses a welding shop with wash bays, which feature a water collection and recycling system that collects all wastewater, separates all contaminants, filters it and sends it back to be re-used to clean the next piece of iron.

The facility also boasts a 10,000-sq.-ft. parts department with an inventory of more than 17,000 parts numbers and six automated vertical lift parts stocking systems that completely automates the organization and dispensing of smaller parts. It also has a 6,000-sq.-ft. outdoor storage area that allows customers to browse Cat work tools and attachments.

Located on site is SITECH's operation center, an authorized dealer of Trimble Construction technology. From this location SITECH Northeast will offer sales, rentals, service, training and support for all Trimble products. CEG
