Mack Trucks has been driving Australia forward for over 100 years. Built by the hard-working men and women of this great country, Mack Trucks are custom made in Australia with the durability and strength to conquer the long roads and harsh conditions that Australia has to offer.
100 Years in Australia
Australia's first experience with the famous Mack Bulldog took place 100 years ago in 1919, when an AC Mack was specially ordered and delivered for use in the oil industry. From these early days of Australian road transport, Mack has evolved to deliver what operators and drivers need today - productivity, reliability, safety, comfort and durability.
Early on, Mack Trucks earned their trademark nickname of 'the Bulldog.' Standing with pride on the front of the bonnet, the golden bulldog can be found on almost all Mack Trucks. A Mack Truck with a gold-plated bulldog indicates that the entire truck is made of Mack components right here in Australia.
Built by hand, built tough, built in Australia
Since 1963, Mack Trucks have been proudly built in Volvo Group Australia’s factory in Brisbane, Wacol. Highly refined and tailored to Australia's harsh conditions, Mack Trucks Australia take pride in knowing their truck's are uniquely made for their Australian customers and there's nowhere else like this amazing country in the world.
