Mack Trucks Inc. will be featured on the Travel Channel’s “Made in America” series next Tuesday, Nov. 15th at 8 p.m. ET. In the episode, host George Motz works side by side with production technicians at the Mack Macungie Assembly Operations in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, where he tries his hand at a variety of operations, with varying degrees of success.

A highlight is when he takes a shot at installing the famous Bulldog hood ornament that rides on the hood of every Mack truck. “George actually did quite well,” said John Walsh, Mack director of public relations. “But we made sure our folks were close by – nothing left to chance when it comes to delivering a quality product. In the end, everyone had a lot of fun, and we’re looking forward to seeing the show next week.”

The Made in America host and crew also visited the Mack Customer Center in Allentown, Pa., just a few miles from the Macungie plant. Shots of Motz driving a Mack Pinnacle model sleeper are among the scenes in the episode.
