HOLT CAT, the Caterpillar equipment and engine dealer for South, Central, North and Northeast Texas, opened a new location in Edinburg, Texas.
The new location will expand the company’s presence in Hidalgo County, which currently includes a HOLT Truck Center. The addition of a full-service store will help HOLT continue its strong commitment to serving the communities and businesses of South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, where HOLT has been a dealer for more than 80 years, according to the company.
“The new Edinburg location is going to make it even easier for our customers operating in the Rio Grande Valley to have convenient access to the heavy equipment products and services they need,” said Dave Harris, HOLT CAT General Manager. “It fills in a gap in the marketplace – we bring a unique mix of capabilities customers simply can’t get anywhere else, including the most extensive express parts system in Texas and also the best-trained technicians."
Local and state dignitaries attended the grand opening event, joining HOLT CAT senior executives including CEO Peter M. Holt.
Army First Class Sergeant Dana Bowman, a former U.S. Army Golden Knight who is a double-amputee and a wounded warrior advocate, performed a skydiving show at the event. HOLT employs more than 350 veterans, approximately 17 percent of its workforce, and is dedicated to actively expanding job opportunities for those who have served in the armed forces.
The new store will feature a full range of offerings to serve a variety of customer needs across the construction, oil and gas, and paving industries: everything from Cat machine sales, rentals, parts and service to comprehensive rebuild capabilities and custom product fabrication.
