DaimlerChrysler said on Monday that it was counting on new products and greater parts sharing to raise the division's profits this year in the face of stagnant demand, Reuters reported. According to the news agency, the company said its new Actros heavy duty truck, which went into production at its Woerth plant in southern Germany on Monday, would help boost the unit's performance this year, even though the weak market conditions of 2002 were showing no sign of abating.
