Caterpillar to recruit 300 new workers at Leicestershire factory

5 May 10 The world's biggest construction equipment manufacturer Caterpillar is to recruit 300 new workers at its Leicestershire plant.

The world's biggest construction equipment manufacturer Caterpillar is to recruit 300 new workers at its Leicestershire plant.

The recruitment will increase the workforce at its Desford facility by about a third.

The news follows last month's announcement by JCB that it would recruit 200 new staff, and signals a return of confidence to the construction machinery sector.

Caterpillar said the bulk of the jobs would be created on the manufacturing floor. The move follows a shift of production of an excavator to the factory from the USA.
