Daimler Trucks North America announced Thursday that it will expand to All Points at Anson in Whitestown. The 283,500-square-foot distribution center will add an anticipated 45 jobs.
This will be the company’s first expansion in the Midwest. Construction will begin in October with completion in 2017.
“They had a void in the Midwest,” said Molly Whitehead, executive director of the Boone County Economic Development Corp. “That was why this area was appealing.”
“Boone County is perfectly situated for companies like Daimler Trucks North America,” she said, citing interstate access and the Indianapolis airport proximity as enticements for companies to consider the area.
Daimler Trucks, headquartered in Portland, Ore., is a heavy-duty truck manufacturer that produces and markets commercial vehicles under the Freightliner, Western Star and Thomas Built Buses nameplates. They anticipate the new facility will process 7,000 new truck parts daily.
