HAGERSTOWN, Md. -- Mack has announced it will bring production of its drive axles and carrier housings to the company’s Hagerstown, Md. plant.
The move is part of a $30-million investment in the plant, which already produces all Mack engines and transmissions. Heavy-duty drive axles will be assembled in Hagerstown, and Mack carrier housings will be machined there, with the transition expected to be completed in 2015.
“Coming on the heels of the $8 million investment that brought production of the mDrive transmission to Hagerstown last year, this decision is another indication of our commitment to excellence in integrated powertrain design and manufacturing,” said John Walsh, Mack vice-president, marketing.
Mack also plans to upgrade the engine assembly process and centralize its aftermarket core warehousing operations.
