The Mt. Holly Truck Manufacturing Plant is located in Mt. Holly, N.C. and plans to fill 447 new manufacturing and 27 plant-based administrative positions beginning in mid-March. The Mt. Holly plant manufactures Freightliner M2 Business Class medium-duty, hybrid, and natural gas trucks.

The Gastonia Parts manufacturing plant is located in Gastonia, N.C. and plans to add 149 manufacturing jobs and five related administrative positions during the February to May time period to support increased network build rates. The 628 new positions will sharply increase daily production at both facilities.
