The company was originally established in Casper, Wyoming in 1969 and shortly thereafter we opened our Cheyenne facility in 1972. By 1976 business had increased rapidly and we soon moved to our new, larger facility at 5300 West Old Yellowstone Highway in Casper. To better answer the needs of our mining and mineral customers we opened our Gillette location in 1978. In addition to our main service facilities we have resident field service technicians located throughout Wyoming. Wyoming Machinery Company supports three of Wyoming’s major industries - mining, construction, and oil & gas - in addition to many others. Each of our three branches focuses on one or more of these major industries. Wyoming Machinery Company is your Caterpillar® dealer serving 16 counties in Wyoming. We are Caterpillar's only dealership located in Wyoming. Our main branches are in Casper, Gillette, Cheyenne and Rock Springs.
About half of the company's employees work in Casper staffing the executive and administrative offices and the welding, track and chassis shops as well as our award-winning Component Rebuild Center (CRC). The company's second-largest facility located in Gillette has recently completed a major expansion. The expansion added an additional 84,000 ft2 of warehouse space, 70,000 ft2 service area, 16,000 ft2 additional office and support space and a 7,300 ft2 wash bay. Our Cheyenne branch recently opened a new facility to better service not only the increased on-highway truck industry but the expanding needs of the South-East Wyoming's booming construction market. The new 70,000 sq ft Rock Springs facility is uniquely suited to provide products and service to our oil and gas customers in southwest Wyoming. All four facilities are open six days a week and offer a full line of Caterpillar equipment, parts and service.
In 2002, the company marked a milestone in our history with the grand opening of the Component Rebuild Center (CRC). The facility immediately won accolades from Caterpillar as well as local community and industry leaders. In June of 2003, Wyoming Machinery Company's CRC became the first facility in the Western region to achieve Caterpillar's highest contamination control rating. A team from North American Commercial Division (NACD) awarded the facility with a five-star rating based on areas like machine cleanliness, methods and timeliness of oil clean-up and procedures to wash all components before they enter the shop.
Wyoming Machinery Company supports three of Wyoming’s major industries - mining, construction, and oil & gas - in addition to many others. Each of our three branches focuses on one or more of these major industries. The Casper facility serves the markets for mining, petroleum, on-highway trucks, construction, and governmental business. The Gillette branch supports the mining, petroleum and heavy construction industries. And at the Cheyenne branch, where our new larger facility recently opened, the focus is on-highway trucks and general construction.
One industry of great importance to Wyoming Machinery Company is oil and gas. The 1970s were a decade of rapid growth for Wyoming Machinery Company, taking advantage of the uranium and oil booms. The bust of these two industries in the early 1980's left the company with half of its peak sales and people. The last several years has shown a reemergence in petroleum, construction, mining and governmental projects and Wyoming Machinery Company is busier than ever serving customers with increased sales, service and support in all major areas.
