Western Star has marked the production of its 200,000th truck with an event at its Portland Truck Manufacturing Plant.    

“We’re thrilled to see the 200,000th Western Star join the workforce,” said David Carson, Vocational segment, Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) SVP, David Carson.

“Western Star trucks have a reputation as tough trucks that are able to withstand the most extreme conditions and applications. This particular truck, like the ones before it and those that follow, is built for the men and women who depend on their truck to tackle the toughest jobs there are.”

Western Star was founded in 1967. In 2002, Western Star production was moved to its new assembly plant in Portland, the headquarters of parent company, DTNA. The Portland Manufacturing Plant began operations in 1969 and has built nearly 500,000 trucks since its opening.    

“Western Star has succeeded through a deep commitment to building strong, high-quality trucks around customers’ needs,” said Carson.
