Governor Abbott Attends Caterpillar’s 400,000th Engine Milestone Celebration

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today attended Caterpillar’s Engine Milestone Celebration in Seguin, Texas, which commemorated the completion of the 400,000th engine produced at this facility. This 1.7-million-square-foot plant employs more than 2,000 workers and partners with Caterpillar locations in the San Antonio area to complete engine production.

“Today’s milestone is a product of all the hard work that not only powers this factory, but keeps the Caterpillar name going strong here in Texas,” said Governor Abbott. “Caterpillar has been a significant part of our economic growth, but this company is more than just an economic partner. Last year alone Caterpillar donated more than $1 million to charitable causes throughout Texas, including Harvey relief efforts. We are proud to have a partner like Caterpillar investing in our state and communities.”

Governor Abbott also took a tour of the facility, which produces equipment used in the defense, construction, and energy sectors. Caterpillar Inc. currently operates more than 20 facilities and employs more than 4,000 Texans across the state.
