ABOUT MILTON CAT
A privately-held company, Milton CAT is owned by the Milton family. Dealer principal and CEO Chris Milton, is the third generation Milton to be at the helm of a Caterpillar dealership. Chris Milton'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.
Today, the company's products and technology can be found in logging camps and nuclear facilities; dairy farms, US Army Defense installations, hospitals, lobster boats and underground salt mines; solid waste landfills, data centers, paving projects and ferries; commuter rail trains, quarries, school buses and of course, job sites of all sizes.
