Mack Trucks has achieved a major milestone at its Lehigh Valley Operations (LVO) in Macungie, Pa., with the completion of an $84 million renovation project dubbed "Reborn."

Mack Trucks has turned over the keys to its highly anticipated LR Electric demonstration model to New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) officials, who will put it through rigorous, real-world trials. "Mack Trucks is proud to deliver to DSNY their first fully electric refuse vehicle, the Mack LR Electric, so it can begin its in-service trial in their demanding application," said Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks senior vice president of North American sales and commercial operations.

Mack Trucks' all-new Mack MD Series of medium-duty vehicles is now in full production at Mack's new Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) facility in the Roanoke Valley, Va. "Mack Trucks is very proud of the dedication of the RVO team, who worked tirelessly to begin full production amidst the challenges of COVID-19," said Martin Weissburg, president of Mack Trucks.

Mack Trucks announced plans to commercialize the Mack LR Electric, its refuse model equipped with a fully electric integrated Mack drivetrain. Orders for the Mack LR Electric will open in Q4 2020, with deliveries beginning in 2021. "Mack's leadership in the refuse segment goes back more than a century, and we're pleased to build on that heritage today by announcing the commercialization of the LR Electric model," said Martin Weissburg, president, Mack Trucks.
