FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) Navistar International plans to add 200 engineering jobs to its design and engineering center in Fort Wayne, Ind., by the end of the year.

A spokesman for the Warrenville, Ill.-based company said it is hiring engineers for the International Truck and Engine center to be sure that its diesel engines meet federal environmental requirements set to take effect in 2010.

Navistar also announced plans in June to create an alliance with Peoria, Ill.-based Caterpillar to work on technology development, engines and construction vehicles.

Navistar spokesman Jeff Benzing said the new jobs will pay an average of $70,000 a year. They will range from entry-level positions to management posts.

The Fort Wayne design and engineering center now employs 1,100.
