WELCOME to the CofA Retirees & Friends website!



Any suggestions or ideas are very welcome in developing this online facility for Caterpillar of Australia retirees and friends to keep in touch, organise activities, collect, preserve and display artefacts, photos, etc to share with others. Note that all ‘friends’, including present and past Caterpillar employees and their family members, from the global Cat Inc, Cat dealer, customer, and general communities are most welcome to register their interest and join in the activities of the Caterpillar of Australia Retirees & Friends group, and to post messages, comments, ideas, etc. to help achieve the group’s objectives.

    If you could help ‘administer’ the site that would be a big help – that would include improving and developing the layout, etc. as well as just learning how to use the site effectively.

    What a splendid idea to have a Retirees and Friends website .
    After 25 years with the Solar Turbine Division , I look forward to contributing some thing from that angle and also to see other ex Solarites reporting .
    Best regards Fred Sainsbury

    Peter, a belated response. Firstly thanks for the initiative, it is great to read some of the comments and background.

    It was great to read some of the comments and names from the past and Graham Winnett’s list drew back fond memory’s to when I first started with CofA and occasionally got a lift to work with Cliff Payne (he lived in Greythorn as I recall, and I lived in Box Hill North).

    I don’t have a lot of contact with retirees all though we did have a get together with Helmut Nitz, Ivan Banadinovich and spouses at our home last week. Always a great opportunity to talk about old times and people from the past.

    I saw Don Stranger down at Sorrento early this year and although I haven’t been back I hope to catch up with him before Christmas.

    Also caught up with Dennis Mills a few months back at Aireys Inlet (we live down there since I retired), another opportunity to talk about old times!

    Does anyone know if Cat is having a Christmas lunch with retirees invited this year?

    Keep up the great work and best regards,

    Mike Cunningham
