Daimler Trucks Completes Multi-Million Dollar Project in Madras

On the scale of grand openings, what happened in Madras, Oregon today might be the grandest. Daimler Trucks North America officially completed its $18.7 million project called the “High Desert Proving Grounds.” The new testing facility is home to a 31,000 square foot warehouse and 87 acres have been transformed into a test track for Daimler vehicles like Freightliner, Western Star and more.

Central Oregon Daily’s Allison Roecker was there for the grand opening and has more on why this facility could bring a boost to the economy in Jefferson County.
