MAN opens Polish truck plant

MAN has opened a new assembly plant for heavy trucks in Niepolomice near Cracow in Poland. Anton Weinmann, chairman of the executive board said Poland has become an important pillar in the international growth strategy of MAN.
“We build our low-floor buses in Starachowice, our city buses in Poznan and now our heavy trucks in Niepolomice. After all, every second major logistics provider in Poland now bases its operations on MAN products”.
The plant will produce mainly heavy trucks from the TGA WorldWide range for growth markets in Eastern Europe, the CIS countries and the Middle East. All variants of the heavy truck range can be built in Cracow. Closeness to sales and procurement markets was another factor that tipped the balance in the favour of this location. Following the ramp-up of series production in September MAN Nutzfahrzeuge aims to build up to 4,000 vehicles in the Cracow plant by the end of 2007.
