Autocar commemorates official move to new facility

During a recent ceremony, Autocar commemorated the official move to the company's new headquarters and manufacturing facility located at 551 South Washington Street in Hagerstown, Indiana. The event, which was attended by local media and government officials, took place in the main lobby area and included a ribbon-cutting followed by remarks by Autocar management and a guided tour of the new facility. Autocar announced its purchase of the Hagerstown facility in November of 2002. In addition to serving as its headquarters, the Hagerstown facility will be used to assemble the company's Autocar Xpeditor heavy-duty low-cab-over engine (LCOE) trucks. "This is big day for Hagerstown and for our employees," notes Bob Atkins, general manager for Autocar. "We all look forward to working here and becoming active, contributing members of this fine community.""During over 100 years of service, the Autocar name has earned a strong reputation for durability and performance. Bearing the Autocar name is a big responsibility and we are counting on the strong work ethic and tireless dedication of this community's workforce to help us preserve the Autocar heritage, maintain our strong image and support our aggressive growth plans."
