Alban And Caterpillar Dealership Handoff
Front: Buck Alban, Jay Alban & Dale Hollenburg. Back: CEO Don Fites, Jamie Alban & Ron Bonati

A highlight from Alban history, it is August 1998, a momentous, first-time event for Caterpillar® and the Alban CAT Dealership took place in Peoria, the CAT® Global Headquarters.

Three generations of Alban Tractor Co., Inc., welcome Jamie Alban, the youngest member into the family-owned business. Buck Alban, son of the Dealership’s founder, his son Jamie Alban, CAT CEO Don Fites and Dale Hollenburg, NACD Regional Manager – Eastern District, watched as Jamie Alban, Buck’s Grandson, signed the official papers to hand off the Dealership to his control.

Buck’s father, James Alban, started the Dealership in 1921, becoming a Caterpillar® Dealer in 1927. That makes Jamie Alban, the fourth Generation,  that history making for the Albans and Caterpillar, and another chapter in Alban CAT’s storied 90 year history.
