Caterpillar to consolidate Milwaukee operations

July 10, 2013

Caterpillar Inc., a mining equipment manufacturer based in Peoria, Ill., has announced plans to close its Milwaukee metal fabrication shop. The welding operations will be moved about 8 miles away to the company’s main facility in South Milwaukee.

Caterpillar took over a lease for space in the building, owned by Industrial Partners LLC, when it acquired Bucyrus Intl. in 2010. The location has been used for overflow work from the main facility.
