  • 16-Sep-2009 04:51 EDT

Navistar International Corp. and Caterpillar Inc. have formed a new joint venture company, NC2 Global LLC, to serve the global commercial truck market. Navistar and Caterpillar first announced plans to form a joint venture in June 2008 and have identified the leadership team of the new entity that will establish its headquarters in the Chicago area. The 50:50 joint venture will develop, manufacture, and distribute commercial trucks with an initial focus on markets including Australia, Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa, and Turkey. NC2’s product line will feature both conventional and cab-over truck designs and will be sold under both the CAT and International (Navistar) brands. Separately, Navistar and Caterpillar continue to work on design and development of a new proprietary, purpose-built, heavy-duty Cat vocational truck for the North American market. The trucks, manufactured in Navistar’s Garland, TX, facility, will be sold and serviced through the CAT North American Dealer network and are scheduled for full production in mid-2011.
