Yet another truck manufacturer has pulled out of next year’s edition of a major truck show.

Preston Feight, Kenworth general manager and Paccar vice president, said Kenworth will not be exhibiting at the 2016 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., next March.

The company joins Daimler Trucks North America, Volvo Trucks, Mack Trucks and Navistar, all who announced their intent to not exhibit at the annual tradeshow.

“We’re not going to MATS,” said Feight during a press conference at the American Trucking Association’s Management Conference & Exhibition in Philadelphia. “We will continue to invest our money into making sure our customers have experiences with our products.”
