Harold Hastings Deering was appointed manager of the new distributorship, and became a pioneer in the mechanisation of Australia, foreseeing the development needs of the growing nation, and securing the machinery necessary to do the work. In 1932, he formed Hastings Deering Engineering Company Pty. Ltd.
Substantial sales of Caterpillar equipment over the years to major oil exploration and mining projects made its mark in the highly valuable territory of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands. Hastings Deering has become a significant presence in that country’s economy and development. In 1992, the Hastings Deering Group was purchased by the Malaysia-based multinational Sime Darby Berhad, which operates more than 200 companies in 21 countries worldwide.
World-renowned Caterpillar heavy earthmoving equipment is distributed throughout Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands, Queensland, the Northern Territory, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia by the branch network of the Hastings Deering Group.
