GAFFNEY, SC – Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) revealed today that it has invested $22.7 million in Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp (FCCC) to expand facilities and improve operations in South Carolina.
The investment will give a positive boost to many key business operations for FCCC, including the construction of a new logistics centre, expansions for the current office building, employee parking lot, completed chassis parking and loading/delivery operations. The investment will also help drive implementation of a new line side delivery process which will utilize nearly 60% more component kitting.
“The investment shows our commitment to the employees in Gaffney, our customers and to the future of FCCC,” said David Carson, president, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. “We will continue to build the best chassis with the best features and customer support, and this investment will ensure we are well positioned for future growth. I’d like to thank the officials from the state of South Carolina and Cherokee County for their help in making this project possible.”
The expansion to the office building will give FCCC employees a 25% increase in work stations and the training room capacity will increase from 25 to 100.
“The leadership team at DTNA wants to ensure we have the tools and facilities we need to continue delivering the best chassis for all of our customers across all of our product lines,” Carson added.
