New Way’s First Cobra Rear-Loader Built Completely in Mississippi Rolls Off Production Line

05.26.20

Booneville, MS (May 26, 2020) - On Wednesday, May 13th, New Way Trucks celebrated its first 100 percent Mississippi-made Cobra™ refuse truck at its new manufacturing facility in Northeast Mississippi. Production on the company’s Cobra and Viper™ rear-load line began in January, and a number of trucks have already been completed using a combination of parts and components from New Way’s facilities in Iowa. This unit, completed in March, marks the first truck manufactured using components entirely sourced from the Booneville plant.

“Although the COVID-19 pandemic postponed this special event until today, this first, 100 percent Mississippi-made truck marks a momentous occasion in New Way history,” said Mike McLaughlin, CEO of New Way Trucks. “The Booneville and Prentiss County community has been nothing but welcoming. We look forward to continuing to hire great people and produce the highest-quality refuse equipment in the industry–right here–in Mississippi.”

In addition to the rear-load assembly line that built this Cobra, McLaughlin also announced that the New Way Sidewinder XTR™ automated side loader (ASL) production line is operational and producing the industry’s most popular fully ASL. Mississippi State Senator Daniel Sparks shared his congratulations remotely, “I’m sorry that I’m unable to be with you today as we are in legislative session…I do wish you my heartiest of congratulations and look forward to working with you and having a long and prosperous relationship in Northeast Mississippi. Thank you, New Way Trucks!”

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has altered how the world does business, hiring is ongoing and will continue through the remainder of 2020 as production continues to ramp up and new products are brought online. Production in Booneville - and at all New Way facilities - continues as scheduled in strict adherence to the latest CDC and OSHA guidelines. In addition to Cobra/Viper and Sidewinder, New Way’s ROTO PAC—the world’s first auger-driven ASL—has also begun production in Booneville. The company’s recent acquisition of this one-of-a-kind product marks another milestone for New Way, the fastest growing company in the $80 billion North American solid waste industry.
