Freightliner, a leading manufacturer of American-made trucks, was founded in 1942 as Freightliner Inc. Known mainly for construction of heavy duty Class 8 (gross vehicle weight rating- or GVWR- of anything over 33,000 lbs.) diesel trucks, they also manufacture Class 5-7 (GVWR under 33,000 lbs.) trucks, and are a leader in the industry in Class A diesel recreational vehicle chassis and walk-in van markets.
Based in Portland, Oregon, it is a privately held company, its owners Daimler AG, and its parent company Daimler Trucks North America. In May 1981, Consolidated Freightways, Freightliner's parent company since the company's inception, sold its truck manufacturing business and the Freightliner brand to Daimler-Benz, though the Freightliner name is still used on trucks made today.
