Grand Rapids-based Modustri,
maker of digital tools for the heavy equipment industry, has announced a new, strategic alliance with Caterpillar Inc.
Modustri and Caterpillar will work together to develop new innovations that help customers measure wear parts, optimize their fleets and reduce downtime.
Brian Steketee, co-founder and CEO of Modustri, says his company has been working with dealers within the Caterpillar family for the last several years and the new alliance is an evolution of that relationship. "It's a natural progression of our working with Catepillar," says Steketee. "Heavy equipment is a major focus of our business."
With the new alliance in place, Modustri is expected to significantly expand its local team. Steketee estimates his firm will be adding 15-20 new jobs. "We are very thankful to grow our presence in West Michigan and could potentially double the size of our staff in the next 18 months," he says.
Modustri is the inventor and developer of field technology products for industries with stringent requirements for precision measurements and inspection data. For more information visit modustri.com
