New CKD plant opens New CKD plant opens
Daimler has opened a new chassis assembly facility in Bogota. It will assemble the Mercedes-Benz 1016 and the Thomas EF1723, models developed specifically for Colombia. The 1016 is based on the 10-tonne Atego truck and is shipped as a CKD kit from Germany. The US-manufactured Thomas is a 17-tonne front-engined chassis powered by a Cummins ISBe engine. Initial output will be 500 units a year.
