Mack Trucks Inc announced that Mack Defense will supply West-Mark, a leading manufacturer of liquid transportation equipment, with 100 Granite models chassis to fulfill a delivery order under a contract with the US Army Contracting Command in Warren MI. Truck deliveries will continue through the contract period of three years, with a two-year option.
“The Mack Granite is an ideal truck for this type of application because of its unmatched durability and reliability,” said Tom Kelly, president of Mack Defense. “We look forward to continuing to work with West-Mark to fulfill the contract for the US Army.”
West-Mark is producing water and fuel tank trucks that the Army will use to support Iraq, Afghanistan, and other countries’ security forces during their rebuilding efforts. The Mack Granite trucks built for this order will support the Iraqi Ministry of Defense. The order will be fulfilled by January 2013 and is worth approximately $14.5 million, including spare parts.
