Patten Cat, Caterpillar’s authorized dealer in Northern Illinois and Northwest Indiana, is proud to open a new “state of the art” facility in Wauconda, IL. that is designed to expand the company’s ability to better serve the Northwest part of the greater Chicago area, including Northern Cook, Lake and McHenry counties.
The new location is a “one stop” shop for contractors and industrial accounts with a mix of sales, rental, and parts. Available at the new location will be tractors, aerial lifts, power equipment, and parts.
The new location is unique because it features a state of the art facility designed to serve customers and potential buyers efficiently and properly; an expanded rental footprint offering “one stop” solutions for customers; and a new concept in making the procurement of parts simple and more efficient – a drive-through parts pick-up window! The facility will serve a number of industries, specifically heavy construction, commercial construction, industrial and landscaping. In fact, landscapers and locals contractors are an important target for the rental business.
This is a significant event for Patten Cat because it is the first new facility we’ve opened in roughly 50 years and we are returning to a region in which we have a lot of great customers and support. The city of Wauconda has been great through the whole process and we could not have asked for greater support. We hope people see this as a strong commitment to the area and the market.
