The facility is Cummins-Meritor’s largest North American manufacturing site, producing Class 8 truck axles and components for customers such as Volvo, Mack, Freightliner, Peterbilt, and Thomas Built Buses.

“Our employees in Fletcher are critical to making Cummins-Meritor the industry leader in commercial vehicle powertrain system solutions,” said Ken Hogan, vice president and general manager for Cummins-Meritor. “This investment expands our footprint and allows us to attract the key talent we need to continue being the top choice of our global customers.”

A performance-based grant of $50,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help with the expansion.

Cummins and Meritor have four other North Carolina locations, including Forest City, Laurinburg, Rocky Mount and Morganton.
