“Cat® equipment helps us stand out as a leader in our industry.”
Elder Corporation, headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, and led by President J. Elder II, is a leader in residential and commercial site development in the Midwest. From massive earthmoving and complex underground utility projects, to heavy duty demolition work, Elder said his company has been using Cat® equipment since the company was founded in 1960. “We use Cat equipment because of the performance and durability, not to mention the great five-star service.”
Elder Corporation has many Cat machines in its fleet, including track-type tractors, excavators ranging from the 308 to the 345, wheel loaders, skid steer loaders and motor graders.
J. Elder II and his team are such loyal Cat customers that they chose to display a Cat D6 Dozer and a Cat 330C Excavator on the 18-foot-by-18-foot shop doors of their maintenance facility. When asked why he chose those two Cat machines to feature he said, “Both machines are the Swiss army knife of what we use all day long, every day of the year.
“Cat equipment helps us stand out as a leader in our industry,” Elder continued. “I have been to your facilities and listened to your employees share their personal stories and the vision of Caterpillar. We are like-minded and both rely on our customers being satisfied at the end of the day. I put Cat machines on the doors of my maintenance facility because I am very proud of them and I want everyone to know that.”
