The company’s relationship with Northeast Indiana goes back to 1986 and is strong today. Having built over five million trucks, the Fort Wayne assembly plant is one of the most productive in the nation and employs 3,400 Hoosiers. I had the opportunity to visit the plant last week. Their hard work and dedication are impressive testaments to our community’s character. Today’s announcement will create or retain 150 jobs. That’s great news.”
