Daimler Adds Western Star Production in North Carolina


Recommended Posts

Transport Topics / March 27, 2014

Western Star Trucks has expanded production of its Model 4700 tractor to Cleveland, North Carolina, although most of the vehicles are still made in Portland, Oregon.

The niche line of Daimler Trucks North America made the announcement here March 26, prior to the official opening of the Mid-America Trucking Show. Western Star makes severe-duty and heavy-haul trucks as well as highway tractors.

Marketing director Ann Demitruk said production for the 4900 and 6900 models remains wholly in Portland, but the 3-year old 4700 has grown in popularity and needs to branch out.

Cleveland is the largest U.S. manufacturing plant for Freightliner Trucks, DTNA’s larger truck brand. Workers at the plant, which opened in 1989, make Cascadias and other Class 8 Freightliners.
