Mack Defense, which is part of the Volvo Group, announced it has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract from the General Services Administration (GSA). As part of the contract, Mack Defense will supply Mack Pinnacle, Granite and 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. “Mack is known for its products, all of which are built in the U.S.A., and 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.”
