Fontaine Modification is building a new corporate headquarters that will more than double its production and product development capabilities. The new facility, currently under construction in the Charlotte, N.C., I-485 Logistics Center, will be nearly three times the size of the current operation.

Fontaine Modification is an engineering-driven provider of post-production truck services for original equipment manufacturers, dealers and fleets. It operates 10 modification centers strategically located near OEM plants across the United States. Fontaine Modification has been headquartered in Charlotte since 1991.

In addition to the corporate offices, the Charlotte facility is home to the company’s technical center for new product development and a modification center that serves the Freightliner Mt. Holly production plant. More than 75 people work in the location.

New features of the expanded layout include a Customer Pilot Review Center, used for review of the first truck built in a complex order, and a video production area.

The new facility, located off Interstate 485 just two miles from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, is scheduled to open in February 2023.
