Mack to increase employment

Mack Trucks will increase employment by 125 workers at its Macungie, Pa., truck assembly plant, starting in October, the company said Aug. 24.

Mack plans to call back laid-off workers as well as hire new employees, although it didn’t specify a number. The move is planned to support increased production of its Class 8 trucks.

Last week, Mack’s affiliated company, Volvo Trucks North America, said it will recall 270 workers to its truck-building plant in Dublin, Va.
