Every Mack truck, custom built for the Australian and New Zealand market, comes to life at the Australian production facility in Wacol, QLD. 

Join SAE-A as we take you on a tour of the world-class facility and Australia’s largest heavy duty truck production plant. The plant has a staggering annual maximum capacity of 3,000 trucks! 

Located west of Brisbane, the 7.4 hectare plant has complete chassis, cab and final assembly lines, an offline rolling road testing facility, a dedicated training school and much more. 

The Wacol plant prides itself on its highly progressive manufacturing practices, with lean manufacturing and an Operational Management System at the core of its operation. The facility is also highly invested in a proactive approach to environmental care, safety and quality. Energy use and wastage have both been reduced in recent years.

Note: Children below the age of 16 are not permitted in the factory.
