NEW ALBANY, Ohio/PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc.

A thousand pardons for not reporting this last year.

When the former Mack Trucks opened its Winnsboro, South Carolina plant in August 1987, it required that many vendors build nearby plants within 100 miles. CVG chose Kings Mountain, North Carolina as a production location, just south of Gastonia and Charlotte off I-85, some 90 miles away.
