TSL’s embryonic association with Caterpillar began in the early 1920s as the heavy equipment arm of Sime Darby. It then grew into the Singapore branch of Tractors Malaysia before transforming into its subsidiary in December 1969. On 1st January 1983, as a result of a corporate reorganisation in Sime Darby Berhad, TSL became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sime Singapore Limited. In the same year, TSL gained independent Caterpillar dealership status with the service territories of the Republic of Singapore and Christmas Island, Indian Ocean.  In 2004, our ownership was transferred to Sime Darby Industrial Holdings Pte Ltd (formerly known as Tractors Singapore Holdings Pte Ltd) due to restructuring within the Sime Darby group.
