Mack Making Major Investment In Macungie
Mack Trucks has announced a $26 million upgrade of the Macungie Cab & Vehicle Assembly facility in Macungie, Penn., that is aimed at significantly improving the plant’s efficiency and help it deliver even higher quality trucks.
The investment includes a comprehensive realignment of sub-assembly and material handling to more efficiently support the main vehicle assembly lines. The plant will also implement new processes and install new equipment, including two new chassis dynamometers, as part of the upgrade to improve its post-production inspection and testing of completed vehicles.
“This investment speaks to our commitment to operational excellence,” said Vice President and General Manager Roger Johnston. “Our highly engaged workforce will use these enhancements to take another step in our journey toward truly world-class manufacturing in Macungie.”
Mack said that all of its trucks built for the North American market begin assembly at Macungie. The 1.0 million sq. ft. plant includes three cab and two chassis assembly lines, a truck modification center and an engine groom line.Edit Module
