Company History


From its start in a dirt floor garage in Concord, New Hampshire, Milton CAT has grown to 13 locations, spanning a six state territory. Today, Milton CAT runs on the same philosophy that made the company successful in its early years. The company's growth and reputation have been a result of experience, continuity of purpose, empowering employees, and a longstanding partnership with Caterpillar.

Milton CAT is a privately held company, owned by the Milton family. Milton CAT's dealer principal and President, Chris Milton, is the third generation Milton to be at the helm of a Caterpillar dealership. Chris's father Jack learned the ropes under his father, "Milt" Milton, at former Massachusetts CAT dealership Perkins-Milton. In 1960, Jack Milton and partner Bill Jordan founded Jordan-Milton Machinery and represented Caterpillar equipment and engines in New Hampshire and Vermont, expanding into Maine with the acquisition of Arnold Machinery Company in 1982. In 1991, Jordan-Milton acquired Southworth Machinery and the company name became Southworth-Milton. That name was changed to Milton CAT shortly after the company expanded its territory into western New York with the acquisition of bordering CAT dealership Syracuse Supply Company in 2004.
