MAN is restarting truck production after a six-week standstill.

Production ceased or six weeks in mid-March due to supply shortfalls caused by the Ukraine war at MAN’s truck plants in Munich and Krakow.

MAN’s components plants in Nuremberg and Salzgitter are now also gradually ramping up their capacities. “The restart in our truck production is a very good signal for our workforce and our customers,” said MAN CEO Alexander Vlaskamp.

“However, there is no reason for euphoria yet. We will approach our usual production levels only step by step. Production remains subject to major uncertainties,” he said.

“If the war shifts more strongly to western Ukraine again, we may be faced with a renewed standstill. Flexibility is and remains the order of the day, as is strict cost discipline.”
