Ohio Cat, the authorized and exclusive Caterpillar Dealer in Ohio, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana, kicked off construction of its newest building project with a ceremonial groundbreaking at its recently purchased property in the city of Perrysburg, Ohio, August 2.
Building construction at the nearly 40-acre property off of Eckel Junction Rd. will house Ohio Cat, The Cat Rental Store and Northern Ohio Peterbilt, all on one campus. The project will consist of construction of a 65,250-square-foot building including shop space, a parts warehouse, and office space for Ohio Cat’s machine sales, rental and administrative personnel. Other equipment-related work includes an 8,300-square-foot wash building and a 5,940-square-foot cold storage structure. Also, Northern Ohio Peterbilt, the company’s on-highway truck dealership, will be housed in a new 68,000-square-foot building adjacent to Ohio Cat with 26 service bays and a 7,400-square-foot cold storage structure.
Increased business activity in northwest Ohio has necessitated a larger facility for Ohio Cat in the Toledo market, and for the first time, its Peterbilt dealership will have a full-service location in the Toledo area. The company is very optimistic about continued growth in Wood County, and it looks forward to providing its customers with the absolute best in customer service through the increased personnel and enhanced capabilities offered by the new facilities.
