This week, Governor Ducey and Vice President Mike Pence visited Caterpillar's proving grounds in Southern Arizona. Their visit highlighted the benefits of the new United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement for Arizona.

Caterpillar is an Arizona success story: just 3 years ago, Governor Ducey and Caterpillar announced the company was bringing more than 600 new jobs and investing $600 million to expand in Arizona.
Trade with Mexico and Canada supports more than 228,000 Arizona jobs. Arizona's exports to Mexico and Canada total more than $9.7 billion. That's why it is critical that Congress ratify the new USMCA agreement.

Caterpillar Shows Off Its Capabilities For VP Mike Pence In Green Valley

During his visit to Caterpillar, Vice President Mike Pence preached to the choir as he touted the growth of manufacturing jobs in recent years.

Hundreds of Caterpillar engineers, mechanics and machine workers cheered Thursday when Pence spoke of pushing for higher wages for manufacturing jobs and continued growth in U.S.-made goods.

“In Arizona, you do two things really well,” the vice president said. “You make things and you grow things.”

Pence’s visit was to rally people to call on their congressional representatives to get the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement passed.

“Caterpillar is a legendary American company and its best days are ahead,” Pence said, promising to push for the passage of the new, tweaked trade agreement, known as USMCA.

His Southern Arizona visit included a demonstration of the autonomous mining trucks at Caterpillar’s proving grounds in Green Valley, south of Tucson.

Pence watched as the massive trucks moved and dumped dirt while being operated remotely.

Pence waves to a crowd at Tucson International Airport, flanked by Gov. Doug Ducey and Sen. Martha McSally.
