The trucking company opened its new $150 million North Portland headquarters on April 19.
“As a leader in the industry with a reputation for high standards in engineering and sustainable practices, we felt it was important to have our headquarters campus reflect those values,” said Martin Daum, president and CEO of Daimler Trucks North America in a press release. “As one of Portland’s largest employers, we will now have a state-of-the-art work environment to inspire the great talent in our organization and to continue contributing to long-term prosperity in Portland.”
The new headquarters will unite employees who were in offices across the Willamette river and give room to anticipated workforce growth.
The new headquarters is a certified LEED Platinum building.
From the demolition, through the construction, and continuing on to the building’s long-term operations, DTNA made decisions to support sustainable practices, not only for the company, but also for the community. For example, as part of the project and in partnership with the Port of Portland and Business Oregon, DTNA reconnected the greenway trail that runs through the property along the Willamette River and significantly enhanced its natural beauty for the community’s enjoyment.
