DaimlerChrysler Delays Decision

A vote was expected today on whether or not DaimlerChrysler is coming to the Coastal Empire. A short time ago, Daimler's Board of Directors decided to delay that decision. There is no word yet on when they will decide.

If the company does build in Chatham County, the $754 million Sprinter van plant would create 3,300 new jobs. Construction crews are still clearing land at the proposed site in Pooler, Georgia.
