Puckett Machinery Company Achieves Caterpillar’s Circle of Excellence Award


JACKSON, MS – Puckett Machinery Company, the Caterpillar heavy equipment, rental services, and engine dealer for central and southern Mississippi, has been named to Caterpillar’s exclusive Circle of Excellence for 2009-2010. The Circle of Excellence consists of the top ten Cat dealers in North America: the five highest performing dealers each from Caterpillar’s Western and Eastern regions based on their combined performance in a number of measured areas during that two year period.

“Being formally recognized by Caterpillar as being among the top Cat dealerships in North America is a tremendous honor for our company,” stated Hastings Puckett, president. “It is very gratifying for Puckett Machinery Company to be publicly recognized by Caterpillar as being one of its best dealerships.”

Caterpillar introduced the Circle of Excellence award in 2008. At that time, fifteen Cat dealers were honored. Puckett Machinery Company was among this initial group of Circle of Excellence recipients. Since that time, Caterpillar has modified award selection criteria, reducing the overall number of recipients from fifteen to ten, making the group even more elite. Puckett Machinery Company has received this prestigious award both times it has been awarded.

Hastings Puckett added, “These results and this recognition from Caterpillar would not be possible without the efforts of every member of our company. We often say that our company’s single greatest asset is its people. I believe this achievement just further confirms that. Our employees are clearly the unique element that sets our company apart.”

Since 1982, Puckett Machinery Company has been the Caterpillar dealer for Mississippi’s southernmost 40 counties. For more information, please visit the company’s website: www.puckettcat.com
