Citation has facilities located throughout the country, including the one here in Lufkin. Now, there's a new contract that means more business for the plant. Citation has signed with a 3 year contract with Daimler Trucks North America. "It is more the securing of 3 years worth of a supply agreement and it's very dependent upon what's going on in the heavy truck industry which is soft right now," Cary Wood, Chief Operating Officer of Citation explained.
But that hasn't discouraged citation. In fact their researchers are predicting the trucking industry to be better by next year. And the new contract is sure to bring more money to the local plant. Wood said, "Lufkin Texas facility is one of our flagship facilities. It is one of our largest facilities. It still deserves a lot more investment in the future and it's consumed a great amount of investment."With the new contract the company has high expectations of what the Lufkin plant has in store for the future.
