DaimlerChrysler has cancelled plans to build a $US1.5 billion pickup assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, the New York Times (NYT) reported. The complex would have included an assembly plant and several factories built on the grounds by suppliers who would have been responsible for manufacturing functions like assembling the chassis or painting the vehicles, sending parts to the assembly plant just when they were needed, keeping inventory to a minimum and lowering costs, the paper added.
