MAN Truck & Bus
The product spectrum covers trucks in the TGS and TGX series with a gross vehicle weight of over 16 tons. They are assembled as 2, 3 and 4-axle vehicles in different configurations such as semitrailer tractors, vehicles for body manufacturers or all-wheel drive vehicles. The main focus of the sales markets for this plant is Eastern Europe and the CIS. Though vehicles are also supplied to Western Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
Cracow is a pure assembly plant, which means the main components such as axles, engines and cabs are supplied by other MAN plants or from external suppliers.
The efficiency of the Cracow plant is demonstrated in its assembly and logistics processes that are consistently based on the principles of lean production and which are continuously refined. Great value is placed on the sustainable implementation of the MAN production system. Well trained and committed employees are the key to this.
But the Cracow plant would also like to fulfill its responsibility to the environment and society and present itself as an attractive employer. Therefore the location is actively involved in various regional projects as well as in education, and it places great value on environmental protection: it is one of the few Polish companies with an environment management system certified compliant with the high standards of the EMAS system since 2011 and certificate OHSAS 18001:2007 since 2014.
The most valuable resource of the Cracow plant are its employees. Together with the other Polish MAN locations, the Cracow plant has twice been awarded the certificate "TOP Employers Polska".
Thorsten Campehl, Factory Manager in Cracow:
“Since the start of production in 2007, the factory in Niepolomice near Krakow has been an established part of the MAN production network. Our assembly plant for large trucks was designed consistently in accordance with the principles of the MAN production system, and, furthermore, it is being continually and sustainably further developed. In this regard, the motivated, committed and qualified team forms the basis for improvement. We will thus remain a reliable supplier of MAN trucks of the highest quality for our customers in future too.”
The MAN TGS stands for the special requirements faced in difficult heavy-duty and building site traffic. With the various drive formulas for 18 to 41 tons, the TGS masters every challenge.
The TGX series consistently sets standards in heavy-duty national and international long-haul transport in Euro 6 EU exhaust-gas standard. It also satisfies ultimate requirements on living and working comfort as well as ergonomics, value and design with the XXL, XLX and XL cabs.
