Peterson Recognized by Caterpillar for Supplier Excellence

GRANDVIEW, Mo., June 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peterson Manufacturing
Company has been awarded Silver certification for 2012 through Caterpillar
Inc.'s Supplier Quality Excellence Process. Caterpillar personnel visited
Peterson's corporate headquarters in Grandview, Missouri on April 9th to
present the award.

"Silver recognition proves what we've known for some time; Peterson's people
are never content with 'good enough.'" said Peterson's Steve Meagher
(VP-Sales). "No organization can maintain long-term success by just treading
water, no matter how good they are. After 25 years of working closely with
Caterpillar, we know there's no such thing as good enough."

Caterpillar's SQEP evaluates numerous criteria, including quality, shipping
performance, capacity planning and more.

This sort of broad, comprehensive evaluation highlights Peterson's strengths.
"We're committed to improving everything we do, not just the quality of what
goes out our dock doors. The responsiveness and attention we give to our
relationship with Caterpillar is the same commitment we make to every one of
our customers, and that is probably our greatest strength as a company."

Peterson Manufacturing supplies Caterpillar Inc. with a variety of industrial
lighting needs.
