Detroit Diesel Corp. says it has called back some 200 workers over the past few months due to increased demand for its Series 60 engine. A company spokesman says Detroit Diesel has resumed two shifts of production and gone to 9-hour shifts to keep up with demand. It has an order backlog for 11,000 of the engines. Line rates are set at 70 Series 60 engines daily for each shift. Detroit Diesel is scheduled to make its 10,000th Series 60 engine with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in April.
