MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. — Freightliner LLC held a celebration at its Mount Holly Truck Manufacturing Plant June 12 to celebrate 25 years of production there.
The company currently manufactures its Business Class M2 line of medium-duty and vocational trucks at the plant, which opened in 1979 and was originally used to build the company’s heavy-duty trucks.
“Freightliner LLC is celebrating a quarter-century of manufacturing excellence at our Mount Holly plant,” said Rainer Schmueckle, president and CEO of Freightliner LLC. “Through their manufacturing skill and dedication to customers, Mount Holly employees have helped the Freightliner nameplate achieve and maintain a leadership position in North America’s trucking industry.”
The Mount Holly Plant today employs more than 1,100 people. Production employees are members of the UAW. The plant itself features 616,000 sq. ft. of space following a major renovation in 2001/2002.
The celebration was attended by politicians, Freightliner executives and employees and their families.
