Mack Granite models to serve Army

Aug. 23, 2012

The U.S. Army will receive 100 Mack Trucks Granite models through a contract with West-Mark.

West-Mark, a provider of liquid transportation equipment, has placed the order with Mack as part of its contract with the U.S. Army Contracting Command in Warren, MI.

West-Mark is producing water and fuel tanker trucks that the Army will use to support Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries’ security forces during rebuilding efforts. The Mack Granite trucks built for this order will support the Iraqi Ministry of Defense. The order will be fulfilled by January 2013 and is worth approximately $14.5 million, including spare parts, Mack said.

“The Mack Granite is an ideal truck for this type of application because of its unmatched durability and reliability,” said Tom Kelly, president of Mack Defense. “We look forward to continuing to work with West-Mark to fulfill the contract for the U.S. Army.”

Deliveries will continue through the contract period of three years, with a two-year option.
