Mack Trucks to upgrade Macungie assembly plant

By |  June 18, 2014

Mack Trucks will invest $26 million to upgrade its cab and vehicle assembly plant in Macungie, Pa. Mack trucks and diesel engines sold in North America are assembled in the United States, the company says.

The investment will improve the plant’s efficiency significantly and will help it deliver higher quality trucks to its customers, according to Mack.

Sub-assembly and material handling at the plant will be realigned to support the main vehicle assembly lines more efficiently. In addition, new processes will be implemented and new equipment installed to improve the post-production inspection and testing of completed vehicles.

The upgrade will also include two new dynamometers that allow completed trucks to run on stationary rollers for additional testing.

“This investment speaks to our commitment to operational excellence,” says Roger Johnston, the facility’s vice president and general manager.  “Our highly engaged workforce will use these enhancements to take another step in our journey toward truly world-class manufacturing in Macungie.”
