U.S. Army Calls Upon Mack

Mack Trucks, Inc. has received an award of approximately $28.5 million from the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command for heavy-duty tractors and trailers.

Under the terms of the award, the company will, over the next three years, deliver 152 MACK Vision Elite model tractors (known domestically as the Mack Pinnacle Axle Back model) configured as 70-Inch High-Rise sleepers, as well as the same number of 35-ton low boy trailers. Spare parts will also be provided.

“Mack is extremely pleased with this opportunity,” said Dennis Slagle, Mack president and CEO. “We’ve earned our corporate symbol, the Bulldog, by providing tough, tenacious trucks for more than a century. The products we offer today retain that same level of durability and reliability, but feature a level of engineering, technology and comfort that customers 100, 50 or even 10 years ago would not have imagined.”
