Caterpillar Sales Up 30 Percent

December 20, 2011

Caterpillar said Monday that global retail sales of its construction and mining machinery were up 30 percent in the three months to the end of November. While there was strong sales growth in North America, those gains were offset by a slowdown in Latin American markets.

The Wall Street Journal's Market Watch reports that in Cat's largest market, North America, sales were up 41 percent in November alone.
