The Steyr plant is part of the MAN Truck & Bus AG.
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.
