HOLT CAT®(holtcat.com), the Caterpillar® Equipment and Engine dealer for South, Central, North and Northeast Texas, celebrated the grand opening today of a $14 million, 61,000 square-foot full-service facility at 27600 East University Drive in Little Elm, Texas.
The new Denton County store extends HOLT CAT’s presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to nine locations.
“Little Elm is one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas and investments in construction and infrastructure here are driving an ever-increasing demand for Cat® heavy equipment and services,” said Dave Harris, HOLT CAT president and chief operating officer.
“With this new HOLT CAT location, customers can be confident of always having the right machine for the job, backed by knowledgeable advice and expert service delivered by the best-trained technicians in the industry.”
HOLT CAT leaders including CEO Peter M. Holt were joined by customers and state and local dignitaries at the event, including state Sen. Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound.)
Nelson predicted the new store would deliver important benefits to the region:
“It’s wonderful to see HOLT CAT expand their presence in North Texas to Little Elm, she said. “This investment will not only bring jobs and economic development to our community, but also help to immensely support this area’s rapid growth.”
Army Sergeant First Class Dana Bowman, a retired U.S. Army paratrooper who is a double-amputee and a leading wounded warrior advocate, performed a skydiving show at the event. HOLT employs more than 350 veterans, approximately 17 percent of its workforce, and is dedicated to actively expanding job opportunities for men and women who have served in the armed forces.
