The Morning Call / December 3, 2014

Mack Trucks is adding 18 jobs at its Lower Macungie Township assembly plant after closing a facility in Jacksonville, Fla.

Mack spokesman Christopher Heffner said Wednesday the Jacksonville facility produced kits of "completely knocked down" (CKD) or disassembled trucks (SKD - semi-knocked down) that are shipped to Australia and Venezuela for final assembly.

The Jacksonville operation, which was closed Sunday, was moved to the Lehigh Valley to "increase efficiency," Heffner said. The move to the Lower Macungie plant allows for a reduction in inventory and saves logistics costs, he said.

Eighteen positions were created in Lower Macungie as a result of the move, Heffner said. Six employees from Jacksonville have transferred to the plant, he said.
