Caterpillar Chooses Winston-Salem for $426M Facility
"They are not a stranger to North Carolina," Governor Bev Perdue said of Caterpillar at a press conference this afternoon at Forsyth Technical Community College. "They have a thousand employees here."
Caterpillar chose Winston-Salem over Montgomery, Alabama and Spartanburg, South Carolina. An incentives package of $23.5 million helped the company settle on Winston-Salem.
The company will make components for heavy-duty mining trucks at the new facility.
