LEHIGH VALLEY, Penn. — Mack Trucks will soon follow through with its plan to consolidate production of its entire product line at its Macungie, Penn. assembly plant.
Assembly of highway trucks will be transferred from the company’s New River Valley plant to Macungie, where Mack’s construction and refuse trucks are already being assembled, the company announced.
The move should allow Mack to take advantage of efficiencies arising from consolidated assembly while creating a “brand-unique environment” for Mack customers, the company says.
The transfer will begin in September and should be wrapped up by the end of November, Mack Trucks announced. The New River Valley plant will continue to produce Volvo trucks.
