Published On Jan 21, 2016By Prashant Talreja

Daimler Trucks is in plans to expand its facilities and improve operations in South Carolina (S.C). The firm is investing $22.7 million in Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) to improve operations in Gaffney, S.C.

South Carolina Department of Commerce feels optimistic about the investment and hopes that it brings a positive impact on business operations for FCCC. The new development programs including construction of new logistics center, expansion of the current office building, employee parking lot, completed chassis parking and loading/delivery operations are about to occur. Apart from these, this investment will also initiate the plan to implement a new sideline delivery process to take advantage of 60% more component kitting.

Expanding the current office building will help extend personal work stations by about 25%, and the training room capacity from 25 to 100. It will also help increasing cafeteria capacity from 15 to 119.

FCCC president David Carson said, “Freightliner Custom Chassis has been proud to call South Carolina our home for 20 years. We appreciate our partnership with and the support of Cherokee County and the State of South Carolina,” while expressing his views.

Cherokee County Council Chairman, Mr. Tim Spencer added that, “FCCC is a world leader in the Automotive industry and an outstanding corporate citizen of Cherokee County. This expansion is a perfect example of a perfect partnership between a remarkable company and the community. We are excited to be part of this expansion and look forward to any future growth plans they may have.”
