GREENSBORO, N.C. — The US Army has ordered 100 Mack Granites, which will serve as fuel and water tank trucks.

The order was placed through West-Mark, a manufacturer of liquid transportation equipment, Mack announced. The vehicles will be deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries to support rebuilding efforts.

“The Mack Granite is an ideal truck for this type of application because of its unmatched durability and reliability,” said Tom Kelly, president of Mack Defense. “We look forward to continuing to work with West-Mark to fulfill the contract for the US Army.”

The order, worth about US$14.5 million, will be fulfilled by January, Mack announced.
