Kenworth will construct the new, environmentally friendly facility, expected to open in 2021, adjacent to the current plant. The expansion represents a nearly 25% increase to the current 47,000 m2 plant. The facility will utilize the latest technologies to increase paint capacity by 50%, while also enhancing the plant’s industry-leading product quality, and award-winning environmental stewardship programs. Advanced technologies integrated into the new facility include state-of-the-art robotic paint application systems and the latest in emissions control systems. Complementing the investment in the new Chillicothe paint facility, and scheduled for completion this summer, is the installation of a new 30 million Euro robotic cab assembly cell.
