Daimler Trucks North America Mt Holly Truck Plant Rolls out it’s 750,000 Truck on March 27th 2023. Workers and Management came together to show what a true partnership can achieve.
Plant Manager Joanne Cooper and Jeff Allen Senior Vice President and Specialty- DTNA were on hand to thank Local Union 5285 and its members on the great accomplishment. Local Management showed their gratitude and asked Union President Ricky McDowell to have the honor of driving the 750,000th truck off the end of the production line.

Special guest to the ceremony included retirees, Paul Rosa, Senior Vice President of Procurement at Penske, Mt. Holly City Officials and members of the 1st truck club, which is the foundation of this 750,000th truck.

On Monday, May 29, 2023, Americans across the country will celebrate the brave servicemen and servicewomen who died defending our country. Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start of summer, often a weekend filled with family get-togethers, pool parties, parades, and backyard cookouts. But the true meaning of Memorial Day is a much more solemn occasion. It’s a day of remembrance to honor the sacrifice made by the men and women who have died during their service in the United States military. Whether you celebrate by hosting a backyard get-together or having a simple and intimate moment of silence with your loved ones, Memorial Day is a special time to honor America's history and commemorate the bravery, courage and honor of our troops who gave their all.
