Daimler Trucks North America to boost production

Daimler Trucks North America has announced plans to increase production at its Portland Truck Manufacturing Plant in Oregon in the US which will crate an extra 350 new jobs at the facility by the end of 2012.

This will increase personnel by almost 50 per cent.

The facility exclusively produces heavy-duty Western Star brand Class 8 trucks for use in mining, logging, oil field and construction, as well as on-highway trucks and other specialised vehicles. These vehicles represented about 2% of North American truck sales this year.
