Fontaine Modification opens new headquarters in Charlotte

May 1, 2024
The new headquarters includes corporate offices, a product development technical center, and a modification center

Fontaine Modification has moved into its new corporate headquarters at 8810 Old Dowd Rd. in Charlotte. The move was spurred by growing customer demand, which led Fontaine to build a facility that doubles its production and product development capabilities. This includes the new 145,000-sq.-ft. facility, which is nearly three times the size of its previous location.

“The commercial vehicle industry is in a period of rapid technological change,” said Jamil Young, Fontaine Modification president. “Demand for our traditional design, engineering, and production services for vocational and on-highway trucks is growing at the same time we are being asked to provide the engineering support and path to market for a wide range of new commercial vehicle technologies, including zero-emissions vehicles. Our new headquarters has the space we need to meet our customers’ needs more efficiently.”

The company's new building includes corporate offices, its new product development technical center, and a full modification center that serves the Freightliner Mt. Holly production plant. More than 75 people work in the location.

The new facility will continue to grow in stages. Future development plans include a video production studio and a customer pilot review center.
