GOLDEN AGE: An eight-foot-tall gold statue of the Mack Bulldog was unveiled as part of celebrations at Mack Trucks new world headquarters Sept. 3.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack Trucks has opened its new world headquarters in Greensboro.
“Today begins a new chapter in Mack’s long and illustrious history,” said Dennis Slagle, Mack president and CEO. “We have a 109-year tradition of success, forged by excellent people and products, and that tradition will continue to grow here in North Carolina. The state and local area have welcomed Mack with open arms, and we look forward to becoming part of this community.”
The company marked the occasion with a celebration that included a display of modern and antique Mack trucks, tours of the new headquarters, presentations on Mack’s history and accomplishments, and contests for employees.
Mack says it made the move to Greensboro as part of a restructuring plan designed to improve organizational efficiency and competitiveness. It will also give Mack greater access to the corporate support functions of the Volvo Group, Mack’s parent company. Volvo has had roots in Greensboro since 1981.
“Establishing Mack World Headquarters here in Greensboro alongside our support organizations will make us a more efficient, agile, and cost-effective organization in almost every aspect of our business, from product development to aftermarket support,” Slagle said. “It further positions us for long-term growth and industry leadership.”
As a result of the same restructuring plan, production of all Mack trucks has been consolidated at the Macungie Assembly Operations in Pennsylvania, Pa., just outside of Allentown.
