Global Manufacturing Footprint

Electric Power Facilities

The Caterpillar Electric Power team is comprised of more than 4,500 employees speaking 47 different languages, working in 90 strategic locations in 15 time zones. We never stop working on improving the quality of every product we build. Our quality runs through every facility, wherever we are.



The Alpharetta, Georgia, U. S. A. facility is our primary manufacturing location for global Cat® switchgear. In a power system, switchgear is the component that contains fuses or circuit breakers used to control, protect, and isolate electrical equipment. Switchgear can be used to both de-energize equipment to allow work to be done and to clear faults downstream. In this building, not only do we manufacture new switchgear, we also upgrade customers' existing switchgear. 


The Griffin, Georgia, U.S.A. campus has approximately 850 employees. They build engines for various power generation applications: generator sets, marine engines, and engines for earth-moving machines.



Established in 1989, the Hosur, India facility has more than 200 employees. The facility manufactures a wide range of Cat engines with core competencies in machining, assembly, test, and paint.

The Lafayette, Indiana, U.S.A. facility is home to more than 1,900 Caterpillar employees. They design and manufacture Cat® 3500, 3600, and C175 engines and provide remanufacturing services for 3500 engine products. These diesel, gas, and dual fuel engines are used in marine, petroleum, electric power and rail applications as well as in large Cat mining trucks. Located behind the facility is a dedicated power generation station that includes four generator sets (C175, G3520E, G3516H, and G3520H) that run continuously. Beyond supplying 6.5 megawatts of base electrical load to the factory, the purpose of the facility is to evaluate generator set durability, identify key component wear patterns, and more accurately establish service intervals.
