Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is celebrating the completion and official opening of its new High Desert Proving Grounds in Madras, Oregon. The total High Desert Proving Grounds project required an $18.7 million investment by DTNA. Work began in June 2015 to clear the land with construction commencing in May 2016 by general contractor Kirby Nagelhout. The new proving grounds provide two distinct functions: firstly to merge real-world validation of DTNA's research and development and engineering initiatives and secondly to help bring new technologies to market faster than ever before.
