Mack to Increase Production, Hire 300 at Pennsylvania Plantto Meet Increased Demand

GREENSBORO, NC (May 20, 2011) – Mack Trucks, Inc. today announced that, primarily due to increased demand for MACK® Pinnacle™ model highway trucks, the company will boost production at its Macungie, PA, truck plant in August and hire approximately 300 people to support the increase. Because of recent recalls of employees laid off during the truck industry’s downturn, all of the additional personnel will be new hires.

“Customers are extremely pleased with the Pinnacle model and our MP series engines, in terms of both performance and fuel economy,” said Kevin Flaherty, Mack senior vice president – U.S. and Canada. “With recently announced enhancements to our vehicle aerodynamics and engine offerings, we expect the enthusiasm to continue.”

The production increase will include the addition of a second shift. The company plans to have the new hires in place early in August. Current employment at the plant is 1,030. This includes 60 new hires who joined the plant earlier this month, and 125 people who were either recalled or newly hired last October.
