Caterpillar Group President, Steve WunningCaterpillar completes acquisition of Bucyrus

Caterpillar Group President, Steve Wunning

Caterpillar Inc. has announced it has completed its acquisition of Bucyrus International, Inc. The acquisition, valued at approximately $8.8 billion (including net debt), was funded using cash from its balance sheet and debt. The company did not issue equity to help fund the transaction.

Caterpillar Group President, Steve Wunning, will have executive office accountability for Caterpillar’s Global Mining business, including Bucyrus.

Caterpillar quote     “We are pleased to complete this acquisition and are proud to welcome Bucyrus employees to Caterpillar,” Wunning said. “We are bringing together the best people, the best products and the best facilities from both companies. This acquisition is all about growth and unprecedented opportunities. Combined with our aggressive product development and capacity expansion plans, it will position Caterpillar to offer a broad range of surface and underground mining products and solutions to our customers,”

Wunning added. “The rapid development of the world’s emerging markets is expected to continue to drive an increasing need for commodities, as billions of people around the world seek to improve their standard of living. Wherever there is mining, Caterpillar and our dealers will be there to serve our mining customers,” Wunning added.

He explain that since the acquisition was announced last November, the company has been busy planning to bring Bucyrus into the Caterpillar family. A dedicated team has been working on the integration plans and are now in a position to begin that implementation. As part of the integration process, the company has outlined the structure of the key areas – organization structure,branding and distribution and synergy benefits.

Organization Structure

The Caterpillar Global Mining headquarters will be in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and will include three mining divisions reporting to Steve Wunning.

  • Caterpillar Vice President, Dave Bozeman, will lead the Integrated Manufacturing Operations Division, which will include the global manufacturing operations for Caterpillar mining products. The division has manufacturing operations in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
  • Caterpillar Vice President, Chris Curfman, will lead the Mining Sales and Marketing Division, with global responsibility for maintaining and enhancing customer relationships, developing the global marketing strategy and ensuring future growth opportunities.
  • Luis de Leon, previously chief operating officer for Bucyrus, has been elected by the Caterpillar Board of Directors as a corporate Vice President, and will lead the new Mining Products Division. The division will be responsible for overall mining product strategy development, product design and product sourcing.

In addition, several other Caterpillar divisions will provide critical support to the mining business. These divisions include the Large Power Systems Division, Advanced Components & Systems Division, Remanufacturing & Components Division, Parts Distribution & Logistics Division and Global Purchasing Division.
