[Fort Myers, FL, 7/10/2019 ] – Reliabilityweb.com® and the Association of Asset Management Professionals are pleased to announce that Caterpillar has signed on as an advocate for Women in Reliability and Asset Management (WIRAM). 

Building on the strength of the women within this industry and creating empowered connections across communities is a deep passion for Caterpillar. With digital solutions and services now being delivered worldwide, reliability and asset management are key elements of Caterpillar’s business across all industries.

Ashley McLaughlin, Marketing and Communications, Digital and Technology at Caterpillar, spoke about the significance of becoming an advocate for WIRAM: “Caterpillar, with our dealer network, are helping our customers to make better operational and maintenance decisions while reducing operating costs and increasing overall equipment reliability. It has become a true passion for our teams, and having the ability to extend that into the reliability community and share the stories of the high performing women within our team that help drive our strategy and our reliability footprint in the industrial space is an incredible opportunity.” WIRAM will build on Caterpillar’s existing achievements, says  McLaughlin: “Caterpillar already has multiple initiatives internally to grow and support women within our industry on how to deliver increased business results through diversity and inclusion, equal representation, and women in leadership. We’re excited to bring that expertise into the reliability community.”
