expects the facility to be completed in August. Hyre said that full production will be coming on incrementally, with completed construction, training, and inventory in place by 2012.

Once finished, the facility will produce air-suspension and static seats; formed flooring systems; thermoformed plastics and injection molded hard- and soft-trim interior components like headliners, back walls, and curtains.  It will also provide sequencing and bulk-packaging services. CVG facility will consist a three-building campus, with each building focused on a different and specific production process.

The heavy truck market is active in Mexico, with Freightliner operating a plant in Santiago Tianguistenco, Mexico. Competitor Kenworth has its KENMEX facility in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico.
