News: Caterpillar Remanufacturing celebrates 35th anniversary

Local and state officials gathered with Caterpillar employees and executives last week at CAT’s Large Engine Reman facility on Legacy Drive. As well as celebrating 35 years of operation, CAT also unveiled the new 3500 Reman Engine now assembled in Corinth.
Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director Glenn McCullough said to the assembled group: “You remanufacture engines that help move the global economy, and for that, we honour you.”
As Caterpillar MD Trent Tippey said, it’s the workforce which has helped CAT continue in Mississippi for 35 years and land the job of remanufacturing CAT’s new 3500 engine, which has already created an extra 75 jobs in Corinth.
More than 500,000 tons of material has been returned and repurposed at Corinth CAT in the past 10 years.
Oakdene Hollins is proud to have been associated with Caterpillar Remanufacturing in the UK through the CRR, and we reported back in February 2016 that CAT would be moving more reman work to Corinth.
