Mack Boring & Parts Co. is turning 90 this year.

From its early days as the Newark, N.J., area’s premier rebuilder of Model-T?automobile engines, Mack Boring has grown to become one of the most advanced diesel power engineering, assembly, service and distribution organizations in North America.

The origin of the Mack Boring business name dates from 1922, when Ed McGovern Sr. founded the company. His nickname was “Mack,” and “boring” was one of his thriving machine shop specialties. The company is under the fourth generation of uninterrupted McGovern family management.

To help commemorate its milestone, Mack Boring has launched a website at www.mbpc90.com dedicated to reflecting on the company’s heritage. The site includes a company history written by industry author Steve D’Antonio, a timeline, testimonials and a profile of the business today.

Mack Boring distributes marine and industrial marine engines, marine transmissions and related powertrain products.

Based in Union, N.J., with branches in Middleborough, Mass., and Wilmington, N.C., Mack Boring is an exclusive East Coast factory distributor for Yanmar, Scania, Mitsubishi and Isuzu diesel engines.
