From its founding in 1900 to the present day, Mack Trucks (official site) is one of the largest manufacturers of 7-8 class trucks in North America. The largest annual turnover is in the US # 4 after International. MACK is actively promoting the 6-7 class car series in Canada, Mexico and Europe. Macs are sold and serviced in over 45 countries. The company owns its own network of 670 dealerships and service centers and is wholly owned by the European concern Renault.
In total, in 2001, Mack sold 20,351 units of class 7-8 equipment in the United States, which amounted to 14.6% of the total number of similar equipment sold this year. Compared to 2000, sales grew by 13.3%. According to statistics, today Mack is the only company in the United States to have such a high sales rate among all American truck manufacturers in the previous 9 years.
Sold 2,086 units of Class 8 heavy equipment, thereby increasing its share in the Canadian market from 10.2% in 2000 to 11.4% in 2001. Mack's largest plant outside the US, Mack Trucks Australia, sold 707 vehicles, accounting for a 12.9% share of all Class 8 vehicles sold on the Australian continent in 2001. As of 2002, the company employs 5506 people around the globe.
Mack independently designs and manufactures engines, chassis and chassis. The assembly concept is based on the so-called. "Balanced design". All components are designed for each other, work well together and work together to deliver brilliant results. The technique accepts spare parts from other manufacturers. The term “balanced design” is nothing new. Partners are a special company. Unlike many of its competitors, as a rule, purchasing components from different suppliers, M - Volvo AB and Renault V.I. have been using such a production ideology for a long time. It's given us more R&D.
MACK factories have their own system of quality standardization and acceptance. The company management believes that every worker has a responsibility to contribute to the prosperity of production. For example, inventions and any, even the most insignificant, rationalization proposals are financially encouraged. If a worker discovers a defect before the node gets on the QC line, it's a solid bonus.
Mack Titan was officially introduced to the US market in 2008. It was offered as a tractor for harsh conditions: transportation of oversized cargo, oil and gas production, timber removal. However, orders for it were only piecemeal, because the American market for this Mack model ceased to be the main one in the late 90s.
In fact, Titan is much older: it first appeared back in 1995. It's just that few people knew about him, because they presented him in Australia, where he is still quite successful as a tractor for local Road Trains.
To date, in the American program of the Mack company, besides the "garbage" series of cabover MRU / LE, there are only two families that will replace Titan. These are Pinnacle road tractors and Granite construction tractors in an endless range of options.
There are now also two own engines left: the 11-liter MP7 and the 13-liter MP10.
The Mack Anthem truck has been produced in the US since 2018. This is the brand's new flagship, replacing the Pinnacle model.
Anthem's appearance differs from other American trucks thanks to rectangular headlights, as well as vertical decorative stripes on the radiator grille and bumper. Another unusual solution is additional mirrors on the hood.
Inside there is a traditional cabin interior and a spacious sleeping compartment with a microwave oven, TV, an abundance of drawers and shelves. A tractor without a sleeping bag will also be released for work on short routes.
Mack Anthem is equipped with in-line six-cylinder diesel engines with a volume of 11 liters (330–411 hp) or 13 liters (390–451 hp). Unlike other American truck manufacturers, Mack uses its own engines, not purchased ones. Transmissions - to choose from: mechanical, automated or automatic.
