Mack Trucks celebrated 50 years of powertrain assembly in Hagerstown, MD, on May 4, 2011. The 1.5 million square foot, Maryland facility opened in 1961.
“For half a century, the heart of every Mack truck has originated in Hagerstown,” said Kevin Flaherty, Mack senior vice president, U.S. and Canada. “We’ve always been an integrated manufacturer, with engines, transmissions and axles specifically designed to work together. Delivering on the Mack brand promise of reliability, durability and application excellence starts with the powertrain – and our hats are off to everyone in Hagerstown as they celebrate this milestone.”
