Caterpillar is investing more than £700,000 in its Northern Ireland operations to create a facility to showcase its locally manufactured products to international customers.
Robert Kennedy, Caterpillar Northern Ireland operations director, said the investment is set to "greatly assist" the company's marketing to international customers.
The new centre will house generator sets, axles for trucks, and material handling machines.
"This is a world-class facility that will really do justice to the quality of manufacturing that takes place across our Northern Ireland operations," said Kennedy.
"We have regular visits to our local facilities by dealers from around the world, as well as from a range of potential international customers.
"This is about putting our very best foot forward and about showcasing our products, expertise and capabilities to their full potential."
The investment follows Caterpillar investing more than £6m to expand its local manufacturing operations to produce articulated truck axles in Northern Ireland.
The manufacturing giant has four sites in Northern Ireland - Larne, Monkstown, Springvale, and Belfast - employing around 2,100 people.
