PACCAR To Source, Sell Components in China

Posted on December 22, 2006

PACCAR said it is expanding its business in Asia by opening an office in Shanghai, China. The office will open in 2007 and will focus on purchasing production parts for worldwide operations, as well as the sale of PACCAR powertrain components to customers in Asia.

"The Shanghai office will complement PACCAR's existing sales office in Beijing. The rapid development of the highway network in China has generated demand for high-quality, reliable commercial vehicles. The Shanghai office will enable PACCAR to increase its participation in this exciting and important market," said Tom Lundahl, vice president, purchasing.
