MOVING: Caterpillar to build new global headquarters



DEERFIELD, Ill. – Caterpillar Inc. announced today that its new global headquarters will be located in Deerfield, Illinois, a northern Chicago suburb. The new headquarters building is minutes away from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, is centrally located near major interstates and offers direct access to the Chicago Metra.

Caterpillar is moving its global headquarters to Deerfield, Ill., near Chicago.

“We chose this location because it is approximately a 20-minute drive to O’Hare airport and convenient to the city of Chicago via commuter train, achieving our goal to be more accessible to our global customers, dealers and employees,” said Caterpillar CEO Jim Umpleby. “This site gives our employees many options to live in either an urban or suburban environment.”

Caterpillar reached a multi-year leasing agreement with Corporate 500 office park. The company expects about 100 employees to relocate this year, with about 300 people in the new headquarters when fully operational in mid-2018.

The transition to the new headquarters will begin later this year. Please visit www.Caterpillar.com.
