Caterpillar Becomes USCC’s First Benefactor Member

The USCC is excited to announce Caterpillar® Inc. as the Council’s first benefactor member. The involvement of Caterpillar® will bring resources to the organization and support for members through sponsorship, safety education and exclusive member purchasing programs.

“The opportunity to participate in research and support the key trade association in the compost industry will benefit, Caterpillar Inc., the network of Caterpillar dealers, our customers and the communities we live in. The sustainability focus of the USCC aligns with the Caterpillar Inc. focus on leveraging technology and innovation to increase efficiency and productivity with less impact on the environment and helping our customers do the same – enabling their businesses to become more productive by providing products, services and solutions that use resources more efficiently, “ said John Janes, Caterpillar’s landscape industry manager.

Caterpillar will be at COMPOST2015 with Cat equipment to demonstrate and a tradeshow booth, as well as sponsoring the Conference at the Bronze level. The world’s leading equipment manufacturer will also help the USCC launch a new initiative that expands member purchasing benefits, which will be introduced at the Conference. Janes said Caterpillar is passionate about becoming involved in compost equipment safety training.

“This is a partnership that will have a large impact on our organization and our members,” said Leanne Spaulding, membership director. “We are thrilled to welcome Caterpillar to the USCC family during this wave of expansion in our Council and the industry.”
