United Tractor and Equipment Ltd. (UTE) commenced retail distribution of CAT lubricants, adding further value to its 75-year relationship with the Caterpillar (CAT) Tractor Company. UTE, which for the past 18 years has supplied genuine oil for Caterpillar equipment in the construction industry, has expanded its business to benefit a broader consumer segment in the automobile industry. 

“Caterpillar produces the world's no. 1 high performance lubricant, and as the sole authorised Caterpillar dealer in Sri Lanka, UTE is delighted to bring you the full range of CAT oils. We invite retailers, service stations and other stakeholders to join hands with us to take the world class CAT lubricants to consumers, whether they drive a car, an SUV, a lorry, or a prime mover in order to increase the performance standards of their diesel engines,” stated United Tractor and Equipment Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Deepthi Hewageegana. 

The CAT lubricant range of products available island wide through UTE include CAT DEO Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oils, CAT HYDO ADVANCED high performance hydraulic fluids, CAT TDTO drive train and transmission oil, CAT GREASES and the CAT ELC extended life coolant.

“CAT developed lubricants initially for their heavy-duty Caterpillar engines that always demanded high performance. CAT oils are designed to immunise engines, giving them the essential power to perform. It is that technology and standard that is now being passed on to day-to-day automobile users who seek the ideal product for their engines. The CAT DEO 15W 40 CI-4 Diesel Engine oil increases efficiency of the engine, improves equipment performance and offers optimum savings for consumers,” added United Tractor and Equipment Ltd. Chief Marketing Officer Anasuya Gunasena.

UTE has a long-standing collaboration with Caterpillar and is now recognised as one of the oldest CAT dealers in South Asia, as well as the first Sri Lankan firm to import heavy construction machines. Focusing on operational excellence and living up to its purpose with their top-notch customer service, the company is the lone Sri Lankan candidate in the Superbrands ‘General Machinery’ category, providing the finest quality engineering solutions and unrivalled service support for over seven decades, positing it as the only firm that can supply the broadest assortment of single brand machinery.

The UTE Parts Store/PCC (Parts.Cat.Com) is the fastest, easiest, and most reliable website to find and order over 1.4 million genuine CAT® parts online. Orders can be placed 24/7 with the mobile-friendly interface and the parts will be shipped to any location in the island or can be picked up from any of UTE’s branches.
