Commercial Vehicle Group — a supplier to the heavy truck, construction, agriculture, recreation and marine industries — recently was awarded the instrument panel production business for the Freightliner group’s Western Star truck brand.

The new instrument panel will be produced at CVG’s Vancouver, Wash. facility beginning in December 2005. The instrument panel business represents an incremental award for CVG and further expands the product offering to the Freightliner family of companies from CVG.

“We are very pleased to be selected for continued business and innovation opportunities with the Freightliner organization,” said Mervin Dunn, president and CEO of New Albany, Ohio-based CVG. “This marks the first award for instrument panels with Freightliner, and we look forward to further enhancing the Western Star product line.”
