CHATHAM, Ont. – With a renewed commitment to its Chatham Assembly Plant and Chatham-Kent, International Truck and Engine Corporation is celebrating the 800,000th Canadian built quality truck to roll off its Chatham production line.

On Tuesday, Oct. 7, Jordan Feiger, vice president and general manager of International’s Heavy Vehicle Centre, presented the keys to a new 9400i to Al McCully, president, Preferred Transportation Ltd. (owner of this milestone vehicle), and his driver Brad Stone, for whom the truck was ordered. The Chatham assembly plant will continue to produce heavy-duty trucks as a result of the new contract with Canadian autoworkers and the support of the Canadian and Ontario governments.

International’s manufacturing history in Chatham dates back to 1922, when the Chatham wagon works began producing trucks for the company. In 1948, it was replaced by the current Chatham plant, which has undergone several expansions. In 1983, it began producing premium heavy-duty models and is now the largest and most complete, exclusive heavy-duty truck assembly plant in Canada.
