Mack Trucks, Inc. will offer tours on Saturday of its Macungie (PA) Assembly Operations as part of the Antique Truck Club of America’s 31st Annual Antique Truck Show, which will be held June 18-20 at Macungie Memorial Park in the heart of Macungie, PA. The show is nationally known for the quality and breadth of its exhibits, Mack noted, which includes most of history’s major truck brands.
The Macungie plant tour, available Saturday June 19th from 10 am until 4 pm, is self-guided and takes approximately one hour to complete. Round-trip transportation via bus will be provided from the Antique Truck Show to the plant.
The truck OEM pointed out that the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, where Macungie is situated, is well established as the place where Mack trucks are assembled. It is also where the company said it plans to continue bringing customers for the ultimate Mack brand experience.
“We’ve long built what are referred to as vocational trucks – primarily for construction and refuse applications – in the Macungie plant,” said Mike Reardon, Mack vp of marketing. “With the transition of highway truck production into the plant last fall, we now build every Mack truck for North America and export here. We’re also converting our Allentown Engineering Development and Test Center into a Mack Customer Center that will include the current test track, plus displays of vintage and current Mack trucks, and be the new home for the Mack Trucks Museum. “
“Once that conversion process is complete,” he added, “customers will be able to see their trucks being built in the Macungie plant, then come to the Customer Center to test drive their new vehicles and be immersed in the history and tradition of Mack.”
