Mack Trucks officially opened its new world headquarters on National Service Road in Greensboro, NC, during a ceremony last week.
“Today begins a new chapter in Mack’s long and illustrious history,” said Dennis Slagle, Mack president & 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.”
Antique Mack trucks joined their present-day counterparts as part of the ceremony, which included tours of the new headquarters and presentations on the company’s history. The building will be identified easily by the eight-foot-tall gold statue of the Mack Bulldog out front. There is also a retail store open to the public for Mack merchandise.
The headquarters move to Greensboro is part of efforts by Mack’s parent company, Sweden’s Volvo Group, to improve efficiency. Mack will be able to take advantage of coordinated human resources, information technology, financial services and logistics already based in Greensboro as part of the Volvo Group, which is also the parent of Volvo Trucks North America.“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.”
