Mack Trucks has announced plans to expand manufacturing operations in Roanoke County, Virginia. The company, which is part of the Volvo Group and produces heavy- and medium-duty trucks, will invest $14.5 million into the project, creating 51 new jobs in the process. The facility will be expanded by 72,000 square feet to increase capacity for its medium-duty truck line.
In a recent quote, Stephen Roy, global president of Mack Trucks, said, “Mack is committed to making the industrial and product investments we need to be a North American market leader. The expansion of the Roanoke Valley operations plant will help us grow in a strategic market segment and support our sustainability goals.”
Governor Glenn Youngkin added, “Mack Trucks’ expansion further strengthens Virginia’s manufacturing industry ecosystem, which is a core focus of the Commonwealth’s economic development strategy. We are proud that Mack Trucks’ initial investment in a new Roanoke County operation four years ago has yielded a second major investment. This is truly another vote of confidence in Virginia by a global industry leader.”
