Caterpillar has acquired the talent team working for Yard Club.
The San Francisco startup is designed to make more efficient use of construction and other heavy equipment available for contractors and rental. In 2015, Yard Club became the first venture investment of the newly formed Caterpillar Ventures
“Caterpillar is excited to welcome new colleagues from Yard Club,” said Tom Bucklar, Caterpillar Director for Innovation and Digital. “They are a great addition to increasing our strength in user experience and user interface design, and will be heavily involved in designing and building digital solutions within our Cat Connect Technologies and Services to help our customers succeed.”
