PEORIA, Ill., Sept. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Caterpillar Inc. (CAT) is giving a generator set, powered by one of its most powerful engines, to St. Luke's Foundation for Haiti to aid the local hospital's work by providing reliable electricity. This year, Caterpillar celebrates the 35th anniversary of one of its most powerful engines – the 3500. "While most people know Caterpillar for our construction or mining equipment, Caterpillar has a long history of quietly providing power and backup power for a large variety of customers around the world," said Tana Utley, Caterpillar vice president with responsibility for the Large Power Systems Division.
This is one issue not up for debate: Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agree that U.S. infrastructure spending must be increased dramatically. The volatile infrastructure sector has sprung higher this year, but just as investors failed to anticipate the major losses that came in 2014 as concern grew over slowing growth in emerging markets, they may be ignoring potential gains. Cook, a Kingston, N.Y., native trained in math and statistics, has covered machinery, engineering, and construction at CSFB for 16 years.
