Come and join us as Orval Stepper, Jerry Bennett, and Ed Friesen share their experiences and memories regarding the Gerlinger/Towmotor/Caterpillar manufacturing plant of Dallas, Oregon. Founded by Carl F. Gerlinger as Dallas Machine & Locomotive Works in 1918, the manufacturing company evolved into Gerlinger Carrier Company in 1947, then Towmotor Corporation in 1956, and finally Caterpillar Corporation which operated until 1988. The impact of this important manufacturing legacy is still felt to this day.
