Mack to move truck production to PA

Recommended Posts

Found this in the Hemmings eWeekly newsletter..

One for the Rust Belt

See, what goes around really does come around. Word comes to us of Mack Trucks Inc.’s plans to move its highway truck production from its New River Valley plant in Virginia to that traditional stronghold of the Bulldog (and classic vehicles in general), Macungie, Pennsylvania.

The big rigs will be built alongside construction and trash trucks that are already assembled in Macungie, in a factory that’s nearly across the street from the onetime Mack museum in the same town. It’s a reversal of the timeworn practice of shifting such manufacturing jobs to the South. The New River Valley plant, incidentally, will keep producing Volvo trucks, Mack now being an operating unit of Volvo Group.
