Mack Trucks announced that as part of a $30 million investment, the Hagerstown, Md. plant that produces all Mack engines and transmissions will begin assembling all Mack heavy-duty drive axles and machining all Mack carrier housings.
In addition to bringing drive axle operations to Hagerstown, the investment will also be used for upgrades to the engine assembly process, and centralization of aftermarket core warehousing operations. Preparation for the axle operations is underway, with full implementation scheduled for 2015.
