GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack Trucks will be featured in an episode of The National Geographic Channel’s Ultimate Factories this weekend. The hour-long episode, airing Jan. 14 (8/9 p.m. ET/PT), will take viewers behind the scenes, showing the construction of a Mack truck from start to finish.

“Filming a show about Mack trucks was definitely one of the coolest gigs I’ve had,” said Ultimate Factories associate producer Francis Cordero in her blog about the episode.

“There are hundreds of people involved in the making of this truck in three main facilities. We filmed at all three locations, the first at the Macungie Assembly plant where the trucks drive off the line. The second facility was the Powertrain center where the Mack engines are made. The last location we filmed at was the Customer Center where Mack trucks are test driven on a closed course.”
