Mack partners with community to open Mack Truck Stop

As a result of a partnership with multiple organizations in Lehigh Valley, Pa., a Titan by Mack now greets visitors to the Levitt Pavilion at SteelStacks, an arts and cultural center and the former site of Bethlehem Steel.

Mack partnered with ArtsQuest, which manages the Levitt Pavilion, and the Lehigh Career & Technical Institute on the project. The Mack Truck Stop is scheduled to open Friday, June 22. Food for the concession stand will be provided by Mr. Bill’s of Allentown.

A red, white and blue Titan cab was installed to the side of the concession stand, giving the appearance that the cab is pulling the concession stand as a trailer. The concession window is surrounded by a building wrap that includes four themed panels with photos depicting how Mack has – for more than 100 years – supported our troops, built America, protected the environment and moved America.

“We are proud of our heritage in the Lehigh Valley, and the opportunity to partner with LCTI to give students real-world experience in their chosen career paths,” says Kevin Flaherty, president, Mack Trucks North American sales and marketing. “Built in the U.S.A. is important  – all of our trucks are built right here in the Lehigh Valley. Now we can also say we have a permanent display featuring one of our models built by students in this region.”

Mack Trucks provided the Titan cab to students in LCTI’s Diesel/Medium & Heavy Truck, Autobody Collision Repair, Welding and Drafting/CAD technology program. More than 35 students disassembled and rebuilt the truck cab, which included creating schematics for and designing new parts and a number of required modifications.
