How did John Deere colors get inside the new Caterpillar distribution center?

Thursday was a grand opening for the new Caterpillar Inc. west Spokane distribution center, not far from the Medical Lake exit.

The place is huge. The stat of the day was 15. The building (565,000 square feet) can house 15 football fields.

Oddly, the interior has contrasting color patterns. Black and yellow are the official Cat company colors. But the interior floor plans are festooned with green and yellow walkways.

Which are the colors of another heavy equipment manufacturer:  John Deere.

More photos from Thursday's opening can be found online in this gallery from Spokesman Review photographer Jesse Tinsley: http://www.spokesman.com/picture-stories/caterpillar-distribution-center-opens/
