STERLING Truck Corporation is celebrating its fifth year of building trucks in a completely remodeled assembly plant in St Thomas, Ontario, Canada. Since opening the plant, Sterling has built more than 85,000 medium- and heavy-duty trucks. In 2002, Sterling's share in the US and Canada was 6% of the Class 8 market and 3.3% of the Class 6 and Class 7 market. Sterling made its announcement during the Mid-America Trucking show in Louisville, Kentucky, March 19 to 21, 2003.
The Sterling truck line includes the A-Line and L-Line heavy trucks, the Acterra medium trucks, and the Condor and Cargo low cab forward trucks for specialized vocational applications. Sterling trucks are an outgrowth of Freightliner's 1997 purchase of Ford's heavy truck division.
As a part of its announcement, Sterling emphasized that it has spent the past 18 months adding to its already extensive dealer network. During that time, the dealer network has grown by more than 30% to more than 300 dealers. New dealers have been added throughout the US and Canada.
