Caterpillar Inc. chairman and CEO Jim Umpleby rang the opening bell on December 17, 2019, on the New York Stock Exchange to mark the 90th anniversary of the company’s listing on the NYSE, which is considered the world’s foremost securities marketplace. Of the approximately 2,200 companies listed on the NYSE, Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT) is among only 3 percent that have been consecutively listed for 90 years or more.
As part of the celebration, Caterpillar gave Wall Street traders the opportunity to handle an Advanced Construction Excavator Simulator System. Through a panel of video monitors and remote-control technology, traders had the chance to take a turn at the excavator’s controls and attempt to dig virtual trenches, footings, and more. There was also a variety of Cat machines on display in front of the NYSE including a wheel loader, wheeled excavator, industrial loader, and compact loader, all of which have played a part in Caterpillar’s historical success.
