EXODUS Machines of Superior, Wisconsin, has sealed a deal to manufacture and supply material-handling machines for sale through Caterpillar's global distribution network.

Thanks to this new alliance, EXODUS President Bruce Bacon predicted his firm could create over 300 jobs in Superior in the next six to eight years. Currently the firm employs 55 workers.

Established in 2008, EXODUS designs and manufactures machines used to move large materials for industrial use. Clients are now located throughout North America. However, Bacon said the Caterpillar opportunity will introduce the company's products to a much wider range of customers located throughout the world.
