In 1905, the Holt Manufacturing Company created a steam traction engine to help with the construction of the San Francisco cable car project. Holt continued to contribute to efforts such as the 1906 San Francisco earthquake recovery, WWI, and other activities. The company constructed a “Caterpillar type” machine tractor and in 1910, after moving headquarters to Peoria, the company established a new factory and incorporated the Holt Caterpillar Company. Due to financial hardships during the 1920s, the company underwent a merger and reemerged as a financially more stable company named Caterpillar Tractor Co. Caterpillar made an effort to both expand in developing markets in Russia, China, and Brazil and also executed a number of purchases, a majority of which occurred beginning in the 1990s. Now the company is so large it has more than $70 billion in assets.
