Saint Petersburg plant

MAN Truck & Bus plant in Saint Petersburg

In April 2011 representatives from MAN and the City of Saint Petersburg signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the intention of building a local production site at the St. Petersburg plant. At the end 2012 production started in test operation.

In the start phase, the production programme includes trucks in the TGS WW series in the Euro 4 exhaust-gas standard, and it will be extended successively to meet the market demand.

The young team on site is made up nearly exclusively from local specialists who are extremely well trained and experienced in the automotive industry. 85 people are now employed at the plant – from workers right up to the plant manager.

With a lot of commitment, the last preparations are being made and the required licensing procedures completed so that series production can start. When this has all been completed, MAN premium trucks from local production will be driving on Russian roads.

The production plant – just like all plants in the MAN production network – are based upon centralised MAN quality specifications and standards, and it will then satisfy the high requirements Russian customers place on premium vehicles. Since planning for the plant started, MAN has encouraged localisation of components and will also further increase the proportion of parts from local suppliers in the future.
