MAN stands for transport and energy. Founded in 1758, the company has been one of the Volkswagen Group’s independent brands since November 9, 2011. The Munich-based company’s product portfolio ranges from trucks through marine engines with up to 100,000 PS and turbines down to turnkey power plants – all true driving forces, developed and created by over 53,500 MAN employees worldwide.


MAN is a global player and present on five continents. The company is growing above all in the BRIC countries and is building on its strong position in emerging growth markets such as Argentina, Chile, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey. But Europe continues to be MAN’s strongest region in terms of revenue.
