Mack Defense Nets GSA Contracted to Deliver CNG, LNG Trucks

Mack Defense has been awarded an indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity contract from the General Services Administration (GSA) to supply Mack Pinnacle, Mack Granite and Mack TerraPro models from now until the initial contract ends Oct. 31, 2015. GSA has the option to extend the contract for an additional year through Oct. 31, 2016.

The GSA contract also includes natural gas-powered vehicles from Mack. Mack offers the natural gas-powered Pinnacle highway model, which runs on either compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“We look forward to working with the GSA to fulfill our contract with natural gas-powered and diesel-powered Mack vehicles,” said Ryan Werling, president of Mack Defense. “We are excited to offer natural gas-powered solutions for our government customers looking for alternative-fuel vehicles. We are pleased that Mack is the only OEM under the contract to offer heavy-duty natural gas vehicles.”

Mack Defense is part of the Volvo Group, a global manufacturer of trucks, buses, construction equipment and marine and industrial engines.
