Middletown Circular Operations
The Middletown Circular Operations facility, formally known as the Middletown Remanufacturing (Reman) Center, opened in 1955 and is housed in a 70,000-square-foot facility in Middletown, Pennsylvania. Circular Operations receives components that have exceeded their initial life-cycle and restores them to their original performance specifications. The facility remanufactures engines, transmissions, carriers, cylinder heads and other small components. These remanufactured components then begin another life-cycle with genuine Mack or Volvo reliability and contribute to a circular product life-cycle. Remanufacturing requires significantly lower consumption of natural resources and energy and produces less CO2 emissions.
