Mack Trucks to Invest $26 Million in Pennsylvania Plant

Mack Trucks Inc.

Mack Trucks said it will invest $26 million to upgrade its cab and vehicle assembly plant in Macungie, Pennsylvania.

The company will install new equipment to improve its post-production inspection and testing of completed vehicles and realign its material handling to support the main vehicle assembly lines.

 “Our highly engaged workforce will use these enhancements to take another step in our journey toward truly world-class manufacturing in Macungie,” Vice President and General Manager Roger Johnston said in a statement.

The equipment includes two dynamometers, which allow completed trucks to run on stationary rollers for enhanced testing.

“This latest significant investment in our facilities sends a clear message that Mack is poised to grow our business,” said Stephen Roy, president of Mack Trucks North American sales and marketing.
