LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. – Mack Trucks recently announced the 2,000th Mack highway vehicle rolled off the line at its New River Valley (NRV) assembly facility.
The milestone at the Dublin, Virginia plant marks a significant manufacturing achievement for the company, coming just six months after Mack ended production of CH and Vision highway models at its facility in Winnsboro, S.C.
The last Mack vehicle came off the line in Winnsboro Nov. 8, 2002, and the plant was closed on Nov. 15. Less than three weeks later, on Dec. 4, 2002, the first Mack vehicle built at NRV was driven off the plant’s new Area South line for delivery to the customer. Mack production at NRV has progressively increased since then, reaching the current 36 units a day on May 1, 2003.
“The 2,000-truck milestone, together with the ramp-up in Mack production rates and the reaction of our customers to both the plant and the products being produced there, are all indicative of how successful this transition has been,” said Paul Vikner, Mack president and CEO.
