Company to leave current location in suburban Chicago
Caterpillar Inc. announced it will move its global headquarters to the company’s existing office in Irving, Texas, from its current location in Deerfield, Ill.
“We believe it’s in the best strategic interest of the company to make this move, which supports Caterpillar’s strategy for profitable growth as we help our customers build a better, more sustainable world,” said Chairman and CEO Jim Umpleby.
Caterpillar has had a presence in Texas since the 1960s across several areas of the company. Illinois remains the largest concentration of Caterpillar employees anywhere in the world, particularly in the cities of Peoria and Decatur.
The company will begin transitioning its headquarters to Irving, which is a suburb of Dallas-Ft. Worth, this year.
Caterpillar announced it would move its headquarters from Peoria to the northern Chicago suburb in April 2017, and housed up to 300 employees in that office.
