Nov 21 15
Daimler Trucks announced that it plans to invest about $475 million in the Detroit area, creating 330 jobs and bringing assembly of two new engines to the U.S. under the same roof as assembly of transmissions and axles for medium-duty trucks. An additional $370 million to $380 million is to build two new medium-duty engines that can go into the company's Freightliner and Western Star big trucks. The engines are currently built in Germany but will be sourced from the Redford Township plant by the end of 2018. Daimler Truck North America vehicles will be available with the new engines by the end of 2016 but they will come from the Mercedes-Benz plant in Mannheim, Germany, until U.S. production in late 2018 takes over supplying North American trucks.
