LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. — Mack Trucks has announced it is increasing employment at its Macungie Assembly Operations by about 125 workers beginning the first week of October.
The company said the company will be recalling laid off workers and hiring new employees as well as demand for its trucks increases.
“This action will support a ramp-up in production,” said Mack spokesman John Walsh. “While the construction market remains very weak, we’ve recently experienced an uptick in order activity on the highway and refuse sides of our business. Beyond the economic and market forces at work, we’re also getting a very positive reaction to our new EPA2010-compliant trucks.”
Mack officials said the company has seen its US retail sales climb about 17% through July.
