Before it became a part of Milton CAT’s new facility, the last steel beam was signed by the Milton CAT team and their design-build partners from Bowdoin Construction.
“Bowdoin Construction is proud to have been selected as the design-build partner for Milton CAT’s new facility," said a spokesperson from Bowdoin Construction. "The project was carefully coordinated by UDA Architects, Bowdoin’s in-house design and construction professionals, and mechanical and electrical trade partners. It was great to see the large array of Caterpillar equipment utilized by the site contractor, D.W. White, as they moved over 20,000 cubic yards of material for the project. We appreciate the collaborative spirit that Milton CAT has promoted, and we look forward to the ribbon cutting in 2024."
Located off Route 24, the Page Street facility was designed with customers in mind, with a variety of safety and efficiency-improving features. From the showroom, customers will be able to get their questions answered directly by sales, service, parts, credit, and technology experts.
“The anticipation for the new location is growing immensely,” said Milton CAT Stoughton Machine Sales Manager Tom Benedetti. “As soon as our customers started to hear about Stoughton, there was immediate excitement, and the news spread fast. The team can’t wait to start helping our eastern Massachusetts customers from the new state-of-the-art facility.”
The service shop will be fully equipped with three overhead cranes, in-floor scissor lifts, easy-access oil reels, and heated floors. Milton CAT service technicians will be able to complete a wide range of service and repair tasks on both compact and large equipment.
The warehouse will stock an expansive parts inventory so most parts orders can be quickly fulfilled from the on-site inventory. Two automated vertical lift parts stocking systems will house the majority of parts. The parts will be stored on revolving tracks that automatically come down when a part needs to be picked. For same-day assemblies, the hydraulic hose shop will be fully stocked with hoses and couplings for all makes and models of equipment.
