Daimler Trucks' Saltillo plant in Mexico builds 100,000th Freightliner truck

Daimler Trucks North America celebrated the assembly of the 100,000th Freightliner truck in its Saltillo plant in Mexico.

The anniversary vehicle is a heavy-duty long-distance truck type Freightliner Cascadia and was delivered to “Grupo Mon-Ro”, a specialist in national and international freight operations.

The Saltillo plant, which was built with an investment volume of $300 million, is part of the international production network of Daimler’s commercial vehicle subsidiary Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA). Saltillo can accommodate an annual production volume of up to 30,000 Freightliner Cascadia units for the Mexican domestic market and exports to further countries of Latin America, the United States and Canada.

“After the first turn of the sod in the year 2007 and the plant opening in 2009, we are proud to celebrate the production milestone of the 100,000th Freightliner Cascadia truck in the Saltillo plant in November this year,” said Martin Daum, Daimler Trucks North America President and CEO.

The Saltillo location houses the production plant, a logistics center, an administration building and a training center on a total area of over 120,000 square meters. In addition to Saltillo, Santiago Tianguistenco is the second production location of Daimler Trucks North America in Mexico.
