Kenworth’s plant in Chillicothe, Ohio, is undergoing a $17 million construction project to enhance assembly efficiencies, the company announced Wednesday.

The 25,000 square-foot addition, which is being built on the top of the current plant, will feature a climate-controlled environment to provide quality improvements for painted parts and a new system will increase the plant’s efficiency by using technology to achieve rapid storage of painted parts, and faster delivery of those parts when needed on the assembly line.

“This cutting edge system will provide customers with enhanced truck quality while advancing the technologies embedded within our assembly operations,” says Daryl Simon, Kenworth assistant general manager for operations.

Employees Chillicothe factory produced the plant’s 500,000th truck in February.
