Caterpillar Inc. ® (Cat) selected four of its largest and most experienced mainline pipeline construction equipment dealers to form a unique Cat dealership – one without geographic borders. With a territory defined as mainline pipeline projects, PLM is able to efficiently accumulate, move and distribute the specialty equipment needed by the pipeline construction industry
PipeLine Machinery International (PLM) supports the global needs of mainline pipeline construction customers worldwide with one-stop access to the most extensive pipeline machinery expertise in the business.
PLM was formed in May 2005 as a Limited Partnership of North America's largest and most experienced providers of purpose-built and traditional machines for the pipeline industry.
The pipeline fleets of all four partners were contributed to the new dealership along with the pipeline specialist managers and personnel. Together they bring over 250 years of accumulated experience in heavy equipment sales/rentals/service to mainline pipeline construction throughout the world.
PLM-supplied machines are now operating on every continent. An international sales force is in place to work with contractors on fleet estimates, assist private and government pipeline owning companies with mega project machine scheduling and coordinate the parts and service resources for a project from the over 3000 local Caterpillar dealer facilities worldwide.
