History of International Trucks

As previously stated, International Harvester was where the journey of International Trucks began. In 1921, their Springfield, Ohio plan began to assemble and create high-velocity trucks which started at around 7,000 units which grew close to 50,000 units by 1929.

In 1937, developmental changes to the trucks’ engines were made. By 1939, the Indianapolis plant was dedicated to being the biggest office to manufacture truck engines. Throughout the 1930s, the company continued to produce International multi-stop undercarriages and a wide variety of Metro bodies. Jumping to the company’s most critical business year, in 1952 is when International Trucks were taken to the next level. International Trucks introduced melted petroleum-gas-controlled engines. Otherwise known as “LPG”, this increased work productivity which was very attractive to truck clients all over the nation.

After the 1950s, the business’s deals started to total over $749 million and only increased from then on for their International Trucks and parts.
