MAN Truck & Bus Reorganizes MAN Engines
By Jack Burke18 January 2018
MAN Truck & Bus has reorganized MAN Engines, its engines and components business area, into an independent business unit.
The move is in recognition of MAN Engines’ s considerable growth in the past few years and should improve its business and market management, the company said. The change will allow the company to respond more quickly and flexibly to current and future situations, as well as any customer wishes, the company said.
“The engine and component business of MAN Truck & Bus AG benefits from synergies with truck and bus/coach production,” said Dr. Ulrich Dilling, executive board member Production & Logistics at MAN Truck & Bus AG, who is responsible for the MAN Engines business unit in the Executive Board. “But at the same time, the markets and customer structures differ considerably. These are now taken into account more concretely through the independence of MAN Engines as a business unit. By making MAN Engines a distinct entity, we are also highlighting our intention to continuously boost and further expand the engine and component business.”
From 2009 to 2017, Dilling led the international competence center for engines in Nuremberg, meaning he is extremely familiar with the market conditions of this business.
The MAN Engines business unit in Nuremberg is led by a management team of five people, under the leadership of Dr. Matthias Schreiber as the head of MAN Engines. The divisions of Strategy & Projects (Marcus Maria Ganseforth), Development (Werner Kübler), Sales (Reiner Rößner) and Controlling (Olaf Heßling) have assumed the functional responsibilities.
MAN Engines develops, produces and sells a wide range of efficient diesel and gas engines for a wide variety of applications in numerous industries. In addition to use in the Group’s own trucks and buses/coaches, the high-speed MAN engines can be found in the commercial vehicles of third-party providers, in power generation and cogeneration systems, as well as the drives for agricultural machinery, rail, marine and special vehicles, amongst others. The power of the MAN engines ranges from 50 hp to 1900 hp and is covered by 4- and 6-cylinder series, as well as 8- and 12-cylinder V engines. MAN Engines’ product range is completed by transfer cases and axles for buses/coaches and special vehicles.
