What is being built

The very latest organisational and logistics methods are applied to the manufacture of the entire light and medium truck series of MAN. Furthermore Steyr produces special vehicles and cabs for MAN's production network.

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!’ ”
