Mack has opened a new facility in Virginia for medium duty trucks.

Mack Trucks adds first medium-duty in two decades
Mack Trucks will build Class 6 and 7 medium-duty trucks for the first time in decades, investing $13 million to take over a vacant facility near Roanoke, Virginia, the company said Thursday.
Mack is investing $13 million to improve the 280,000-square-foot facility to build MD Series trucks for van, refrigerated and other applications.
The location in the Blue Ridge Mountains places Mack, a unit of Volvo Group (OTC: VLVLY), just 45 miles south on Interstate 81 from its sibling Volvo Trucks North America, which builds heavy-duty trucks in Dublin, Virginia. Mack’s heavy-duty plant is in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley near Allentown.
The new plant received $700,000 from the Virginia Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam attended the ribbon cutting inside the plant on Thursday. It is expected to create 250 new jobs and add $364 million annually to the local economy.
