Ohio CAT has acquired the expanded Cat Mining equipment distribution and support business for its territories from Caterpillar Global Mining LLC. Ohio CAT is the authorized Cat dealer in Ohio, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana.

Ken Taylor, president of Ohio CAT, said, “Taking on the expanded Cat mining products enhances our product offerings and broadens both the equipment and the product support options our mining customers face when they are in the market for surface or underground mining equipment. We have a strong heritage as a locally owned and operated equipment supplier to Ohio’s mining industry, and I am excited about bringing new solutions to our customers which will enhance their operations and lower their long-run average costs.”

Ohio CAT assumed responsibility for the sales, marketing and product support of the expanded Cat mining products, which includes hydraulic shovels, electric shovels, draglines, highwall miners, drills, belt systems, longwall and room and pillar products.

Caterpillar has announced similar transactions with other dealers over the last several months. Caterpillar continues to hold discussions with other Cat dealers that have mining activity in their territories and will continue to operate the former Bucyrus distribution business until the transitions have occurred in a given territory.
