Truck production at MAN restarts


MAN restarted truck production in April 2022 after it had been halted for six weeks due to supply shortages caused by the Ukraine war at MAN’s truck plants in Munich and Krakow. MAN’s component plants in Nuremberg and Salzgitter are gradually ramping up capacity as well. “The restart in our truck production is a very good signal for our workforce and our customers. However, there is no reason for euphoria yet. We will approach our usual production levels only step by step. Production remains subject to major uncertaint­ies. If the war shifts more strongly to western Ukraine again, we may be faced with a renewed standstill. Flexibilit­y is and remains the order of the day, as is strict cost discipline”, said MAN CEO Alexander Vlaskamp. The wiring harness suppliers in Ukraine that produce wiring harnesses for MAN are currently able to manufactur­e and deliver again, albeit at a low level. In addition, MAN is on schedule with the duplicatio­n of wiring harness production in other countries. Initially, however, MAN will have significan­tly fewer variants in its range and with a high degree of uncertaint­y will ramp up step by step.
