GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack Trucks Inc. is investing in new equipment and new processes with the goal of producing better vehicles.

The company is spending US$26 million to upgrade the Macungie Cab & Vehicle Assembly facility in Macungie, Pa. Among the planned improvements are a comprehensive realignment of sub-assembly and material handling, process re-engineering, and new vehicle inspection and testing equipment. Also part of the plan is the addition of two new dynamometers, which allow completed trucks to run on stationary rollers for enhanced testing of a variety of engine and vehicle systems.

“This investment speaks to our commitment to operational excellence,” said Mack vice-president and general manager Roger Johnston. “Our highly engaged workforce will use these enhancements to take another step in our journey toward truly world-class manufacturing in Macungie.”
