ATLANTA – CRH and Caterpillar have signed a strategic agreement for developing and deploying electric off-road vehicles and charging solutions in the aggregates and building materials sectors.

The agreement is focused on accelerating the deployment of Caterpillar’s 70 to 100-ton-class battery-electric off-road truck, with CRH to test and validate units through usage across its North American operations.

This partnership will serve to advance the integration of sustainable equipment across CRH’s operations, while providing Caterpillar with applied insights regarding the safety, performance and operational and compliance requirements of its electric equipment in the aggregates industry.

CRH is North America’s leading aggregates producer, with operations in both Canada and the U.S. With this partnership, CRH is the first company in the sector to sign an electrification agreement with Caterpillar.


CRH has previously collaborated with companies including Shell and Volvo to support the development of new transport technologies and sustainable equipment within the aggregates and building materials sector.
