Younessi to offer ‘unique perspective’ at Diesel Progress Summit

06 August 2019

Ramin Younessi of Caterpillar will use his keynote speech at the Diesel Progress Summit to give his view of the changing world of machinery power.

Younessi, group president of Cat’s Construction Industries Group, and a self-confessed “engine guy”, is uniquely placed to discuss the topic because throughout his career he has seen the on-highway and off-highway world from both the equipment and engine manufacturing points-of-view.
