The plant's main product is the Freightliner-flagship Cascadia heavy-duty truck, which the factory can produce 30,000 examples of each year. This is Daimler Truck's second manufacturing facility in Mexico; the other resides in Santiago Tianguistenco and produces other Freightlinter heavy- and medium-duty trucks.
"Daimler Trucks is improving its competitive position on the North American continent over the long term," said Andreas Renschler, head of Daimler Trucks, "We are confident that with the Cascadia from Saltillo we will be able to fulfill our customers' high expectations regarding product quality, operating costs, and reliability."
