MAN Truck & Bus
The Steyr plant also carries out research and development across all series and components, embedded in MAN's development network and always with the aim of making vehicles more efficient, more reliable, safer, more eco-friendly and more comfortable.
The Pre-Series Center is a hub where the requirements of the process owners in the areas of planning, development and quality assurance are harmonised and optimised in relation to one another. That’s how the manufacturability of products is being assured.
In MTBÖ's wholly-owned subsidiary plant in Banovce in the Slovak Republic they manufacture components range from single parts ready for installation to welded assemblies and attachments ready for installation to sub-assemblies.

“In Steyr, the development and production of commercial vehicles has a tradition going back a century. Today we manufacture all the light and medium MAN trucks as well as special vehicles and cabs for the MAN production network. Further important milestones for the future of the plant have been set with the start of painting of plastic parts and the building of trucks with electric motors. Our philosophy is: ‘Light range. Medium range. Strong competence. – We build every vehicle!’ ”

By the end of 2018 9 prototypes based on the TGM series with electric power built at the Steyr plant have been handed over to renowed Austrian companies which operate across Europe. These partners are now testing the vehicles in daily use.
The very latest organisational and logistics methods are applied to the manufacture of the entire light and medium truck series (two or three axles in 4x2, 6x2, 4x4 or 6x4 configuration, 110 to 250 Kw / 150 to 340 hp engines, 7,5 to 26 tonnes gross weight) at the MAN works in Steyr.
Steyr produces cabs for all the series (light, medium and heavy trucks as well as special vehicles and crew cabs) manufactured by MAN’s production network, comprising truck production in Steyr and deliveries to the plants in Vienna, Krakow/Poland, Munich and St.Petersburg/Russia. Cab manufacture extends from the production of modular cabs-in-white-components including priming to complete bans-in-white with subsequent painting and interior equipment. The cabs are then delivered to the vehicle assembly lines, ready to be fitted on.
The TMC caters for special customer requirements not covered by the standard range. The motto is very much „nothing is impossible“ - whether it be a special wheel configuration or a number of axles not offered as standard.
The new paintwork facility for plastic parts at the plant in Steyr gives it a new USP within MAN’s production network. Beginning with 2019, it supplies all production plants in the MAN network with all exterior cab parts that need painting, such as front panels and Aero packages.
