The official signing of the Cat Propulsion Dealer Agreement with Louisiana Cat commenced on August 22, 2016. Louisiana Cat is the first Caterpillar Dealership in the Americas to reach all requirements for training and technical sales and support to become a Gold level dealer for the full line of Cat Propulsion equipment.

“This is truly a milestone for Louisiana Cat! By having a fully integrated Caterpillar propulsion solution available to our customers with the same promise of reliability is a real differentiator in the marketplace. We can now leverage our decades of experience with marine engines and raw horsepower with a very natural extension of our expertise through the shaft and to the propeller. We are excited to be the first dealer in the Americas to achieve this goal through qualification in a rigorous technical sales and support training over the last year and a half,” said Mike Jennings, Louisiana Cat Power Systems Division General Manager.

Louisiana Cat is very excited to add these products to our line of propulsion offerings to more completely meet the customer’s need for a single source for complete propulsion systems. This expansion of the marine product line from the engine and generator to the entire marine propulsion system package will help maximize uptime, while reducing operating costs for offshore platform service and towing vessels, inland river cargo & transportation vessels, fishing & governmental vessels.
