MACK COMPENSATES FOR SLUMPING DELIVERIES

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. — Deliveries from Mack Trucks, Inc. through February 2001 totaled 4,152 vehicles, down 37 per cent from the 6,579 units delivered during the same period last year.

“Mack is continuing to monitor the market and make the changes necessary to keep inventories in line with demand,” says president and chief executive officer Michel Gigou. “At the same time, we’re focusing on delivering the products and services that will help us continue our market share growth despite the weakening market.”

In an effort to reduce inventories in line with the market, Mack has so far this year taken ten “down days” in its Winnsboro, S.C., and Hagerstown, Md., plants, and seven “down days” in its Macungie, Pa., plant.
