For the first time, on the 7th of February, Renault Trucks’ plants crossed the symbolic threshold of producing 300 vehicles in a single day. This new record was achieved thanks to the commitment and involvement of the manufacturer's entire staff.
To meet increasingly high demand, predominantly fuelled by growth in Eastern European countries, Renault Trucks has significantly increased its plants' rate of production by bringing in weekend teams. This has allowed the number of vehicles produced per day to rise from an average of 225 to 276, reaching a peak of 300 vehicles on the 7th of February.
Looking ahead, the investments of around €57 million made in 2008 at the Blainville sur Orne plant alone, which assembles all the manufacturer's cabs and Renault Midlum distribution range vehicles, will allow even higher records to be set.
To keep pace with this much higher rate of production, Renault Trucks has been carrying out an extensive recruitment plan since 2006, which will lead to total recruitment over the past 3 years reaching 3,000 in 2008.
