The truck and bus manufacturer Daimler Truck wants to settle in Halberstadt (Harz district) in Saxony-Anhalt. This was announced by the investment and marketing company (IMG) on Thursday. Details are to be presented to the public on January 13th. Karin Rådström, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck Holding AG, is expected to attend. The Ministry of Economics in Magdeburg and the IMG did not want to comment on the details of the commitment of the commercial vehicle manufacturer.
In December 2021, the former Daimler group spun off the truck and bus business and distributed most of the shares in Daimler Truck to its own shareholders. Daimler Truck is now listed in the leading German index Dax. According to its own statements, the manufacturer with around 100,000 employees is the world's largest manufacturer of trucks and buses.
