HILLSBORO, Ore. – Peterson Cat, authorized Cat dealer to customers in 100,000 square miles of Northern California, Oregon, and Washington, proudly announced the grand opening of its new facility at 5450 Five Oaks Drive in Hillsboro on June 1, 2018.
Peterson’s 22.5-acre store comprises 214,000 square feet of facilities to support the company’s earthmoving, forestry, and agricultural equipment sales, service, and parts operations; a Cat Rental Store location; advanced hydraulics and fabrication operations; a SITECH Oregon branch providing high-tech equipment guidance and GPS equipment from Trimble for the agriculture and construction industries; and a BuildingPoint Pacific facility to provide customers the latest technology for use in the vertical construction industry.
Duane Doyle, owner and CEO of Peterson Cat, built the new store to demonstrate his company’s commitment to its customers: “We are 100% committed to serving customers in the expanding Portland metro market, so we have built a brand-new facility to demonstrate that commitment,” Doyle said. “Our new location is conveniently located on Highway 26 and features the equipment and tooling necessary to keep today’s heavy equipment working at peak efficiency. Our Hillsboro shops boast 40 service bays, so we’re prepared to take on more work as our construction, farming, and logging customers grow and expand their operations. This facility will allow us to provide them an unparalleled quality of service.”
Peterson’s former facility on Columbia Boulevard in Portland will remain open to serve customers for an indeterminate period as the company completes its move to Hillsboro. Peterson will retain a presence in Portland from its Cat Rental Store at 6654 NE 47th Avenue.
