Mack Trucks expands U.S. manufacturing presence

By |  August 17, 2012

Mack Trucks Inc. has moved production of its mDrive automated manual transmission from Sweden to Hagerstown, Md. More than one-third of the highway trucks currently rolling off the assembly line at Mack’s truck plant in Macungie, Pa., feature the automated manual transmission, which is available on Mack Pinnacle-model highway tractors.

U.S. production of the transmission was possible because of an $8 million investment in the Hagerstown manufacturing plant to create a new assembly line, install the necessary equipment and train personnel. Mack says the investment also created 50 new jobs at the facility.
