Kansas - New Industries

When you are out on the road hauling cargo while exploring the uncharted roads of a new map expansion, it’s easy to get distracted by the wonderful nature and historical landmarks. However, there are three things you should keep in mind wherever you go: where you are driving from, what is your destination, and what your cargo is. For many of you, new industries in the DLCs breathe fresh air into your journey, and we’re glad to showcase new content that you’ll find in the upcoming Kansas DLC.

Battery Factory

Electrical energy is one of the main driving forces in today's world. Its production runs almost continuously, but its consumption fluctuates with demand. For this reason, it is necessary to store it somewhere, and that's where batteries come into play. Help keep humanity running by delivering batteries for electronics, warehouse power, and vehicles, including trucks.

Aerostructures Factory

Kansas is known for its rich aviation history, and it remains a thriving hub for aviation production to this day. As a matter of fact, one-third of all commercial aircraft manufactured in the USA comes from this state! The main production center is the city of Wichita, which is globally recognized as the "Air Capital of the World". Here you will find a new landmark aircraft parts manufacturing depot set within a large complex. Inside and out, a significant amount of bulky cargo will be transported.

Aviation Services

Just like trucks, airplanes occasionally require maintenance or repairs. This is where the new Aviation Service depot comes into play. Workers here take care of various types of flying machines to ensure they continue to safely transport cargo and passengers worldwide. Deliver the materials they need, sometimes even directly to the hangar near the planes, but be careful, aviation equipment is expensive.

Wichita Air Cargo

As mentioned earlier, Wichita is a city of the aviation industry, and a lot of cargo is transported to and from this city by air. This requires a suitable cargo terminal at the local airport and in Kansas DLC, we will have a new depot faithful to the real-world counterpart. 

Building Material Factory

In the real world and in ATS, time and progress never stop. Whether it's building new structures, repairing existing ones, or modernizing, you need construction materials for everything. Our new company, Building Material Factory, supplies a range of materials that customers on construction sites, in warehouses, or in stores are waiting for. But before that can happen, you first need to deliver a variety of raw materials for production. 

Car Factory

Kansas may not be among the most well-known car manufacturers, but you'll still find an automobile factory here. The factory in Kansas City used to produce airplanes, but it has been manufacturing cars since 1947. In this new landmark depot, you'll deliver various types of cargo necessary for car production, so that the finished vehicles are ready for delivery to their customers.

Food Factory

Food. Who doesn't love it? It's a fundamental necessity of life. Most of us acquire food from the store, but it doesn't just appear there. It has to be produced in factories from various imported raw materials. And in Kansas DLC, you will find a new version of such a factory. A modern production plant produces a variety of delicious treats that customers can't wait to get their hands on. 

Salt Mine

Deep beneath the city of Hutchinson lies a great treasure: salt. It might seem mundane to some, but salt is an important resource for food preparation and the production of many industrial products. Animals love it, and it helps motorists get home safely. Help the miners from the local mine extract high-quality salt with your deliveries, which you can then distribute to various customers throughout the ATS world.

Parking Lot Construction

Occasionally, there are breakdowns in underground networks, and excavation work is necessary to repair them. Now, you can encounter this in American Truck Simulator as well. Workers need fast deliveries of materials to ensure quick repairs and the full restoration of critical resources. Breakdowns can happen anywhere, so keep a close eye on the job list to make sure you don't miss any.

So, go ahead and let us know in the comments which new industry you would like to first visit once the Kansas DLC is available. And, if you are already impatient to see more, show us your excitement by adding the map expansion to your Steam Wishlist and follow our social media (X/TwitterInstagramFacebookTikTok) in order to stay in touch with all the latest news.
