Mack adding second shift to keep up with truck demand

MACUNGIE, Pa. -- Mack Trucks is hiring workers and ramping up production of its Pinnacle highway truck.


MACUNGIE, Pa. — Mack Trucks is hiring workers and ramping up production of its Pinnacle highway truck.

The company said it requires about 300 new employees to support production demand of its Mack Pinnacle, and since it has already recalled most of its laid-off workers, most of the additional personnel will be new hires.

“Customers are extremely pleased with the Pinnacle model and our MP series engines, in terms of both performance and fuel economy,” said Kevin Flaherty, Mack senior vice-president, US and Canada. “With recently announced enhancements to our vehicle aerodynamics and engine offerings, we expect the enthusiasm to continue.”

Mack will be adding a second shift at its Macungie plant and says it will have the new hires up and running by early August.
