Two major international manufacturers:
- Renault Trucks (Swedish AB Volvo group) 1,980 employees, the region's leading private employer
Launched in 2000, the plant produced its 100,000th Midlum truck in June 2010
- PSA Peugeot Citroën (1,700 employees), the region's 2nd ranking industrial firm


In 2009, within a market suffering from economic crisis, Renault Trucks sold 35,601 vehicles, hence pulling through far better than most of its competitors in terms of total sales. For 2010, the company is betting on a maximum market rebound of 10%. Renault Trucks has 4 industrial sites in France. Renault Trucks is Volvo Group's second largest subsidiary, its heavy goods vehicle construction activity relying on the development of four names, reputed throughout the international motor vehicle market: Renault, Volvo, Mack and UD (Nissan Diesel).
In 2010, Renault Trucks (French subsidiary of AB Volvo since 2010) is the region's prime private employer with a total of 2,500 employees.
Its Blainville-sur-Orne plant was created in 1956, and Renault Trucks is continuing to invest in the site. In June 2009, Renault Trucks inaugurated two coach building and painting lines, at a total cost of €60M. Early 2010, the Volvo Group subsidiary initiated a further investment of €70M. Covering the period up to 2012, this investment is aimed at modernising the plant's assembly and cabin outfitting lines. The plant produces all of Renault Trucks' heavy vehicle cabins and assembles the firm's mid-weight truck, the Midlum. A total of 100,000 Midlums have been built by Renault Trucks. Launched in the year 2000, this distribution vehicle is entirely manufactured in the Blainville-sur-Orne plant. Blainville-sur-Orne is AB Volvo's leading truck cabin manufacturing site across the globe.
A position made possible thanks to close collaboration with 150 regional companies and on-site motor vehicle equipment manufacturers established within the very production site (Rieter, Daher,...).
From 2000 to 2006, to attain such performance, the Blainville factory has invested 150 million euros (supported by the Departmental and Regional Councils and Caen la mer conurbation).

The PSA Peugeot Citroën plant in CORMELLES-LE-ROYAL

Sales (assembled vehicles or assembly parts) in 2009 throughout the world totalled 3,188,000 vehicles.
(1,842,000 for Peugeot, 1,346,000 for Citroën).

PSA Peugeot Citroën's "mechanique et bruts" site supplies all other group plants with mechanical components (engines, gearboxes and suspension systems) and "raw" components (foundry, pressure die casting, forging and tooling).
Launched in 1963, the mechanical plant in Caen manufactures suspension and transmission systems for Citroën C2, C3, C3 Pluriel, C5, C6, Peugeot 1007, 206, 207, 307 and 407, together with small commercial vehicles manufactured by both brands.
Early 2010, the production site manufactures a daily average of 12,900 transmissions, 5,230 cradles, 11,300 wheel sets and 3,000 spheres. The site handles 150 trucks every day.
Workforce in 2013: 1,700 employees.
