PORTLAND, Ore. — Business is brisk for Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), which has announced it is expanding production and adding 628 positions at its Mt. Holly and Gastonia, N.C. manufacturing plants.
The company says the hirings are in response to rising customer demand for Daimler’s trucks. Daimler will fill about 1,300 positions during the first half of the year at its various truck and parts manufacturing facilities.
“We have received a clear vote of confidence from a broad range of customers,” said Martin Daum, president and chief executive officer, DTNA. “Our new hiring in Mt. Holly and Gastonia is a direct reflection of incoming orders and the resulting production schedule. We remain cautiously optimistic regarding economic and industry recovery but this is a significant and welcome step forward.”
Since January 2010, Daimler has reinstated more than 1,600 manufacturing and admin positions in response to rising demand.
