Caterpillar Buys Marine Engine Company

Thursday, April 06, 2000
Heavy equipment maker Caterpillar Inc. bought closely held Sabre Engines Ltd., a U.K.-based company that specializes in high-performance marine diesel engines. Terms of the deal were not released. Caterpillar already sells 27 different engine models and sells more marine diesel engines over 250 bhp than any other manufacturer in the world. The addition of Sabre Engines Ltd. will add to Caterpillar's offering of marine power systems below 300 bhp. Sabre has had a cooperation agreement with small and medium industrial engine maker Perkins Engines Company Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar, since 1991. Under the agreement, Perkins sells core engines to Sabre for marinization. Caterpillar's engine sales account for about 35 percent of total company sales and revenues, which were over $19.7 billion in 1999.
