MAN Engines, the business area for engines and components at MAN Truck & Bus AG, has been an independent business unit within the company since 1 January 2018. With this step, MAN Engines is reacting to its considerable growth in the past few years and, with this reorganisation, is improving its business and market management. The manufacturer of engines and components can therefore respond more quickly and flexibly to current and future situations, as well as any customer wishes.
“The engine and component business of MAN Truck & Bus AG benefits from synergies with truck and bus/coach production. But at the same time, the markets and customer structures differ considerably. These are now taken into account more concretely through the independence of MAN Engines as a business unit. By making MAN Engines a distinct entity, we are also highlighting our intention to continuously boost and further expand the engine and component business,” says Dr Ulrich Dilling, Executive Board Member Production & Logistics at MAN Truck & Bus AG, who is responsible for the MAN Engines business unit in the Executive Board. From 2009 to 2017, Dilling led the international competence centre for engines in Nuremberg, meaning he is extremely familiar with the market conditions of this business.
The MAN Engines business unit in Nuremberg is led by a management team of five people, under the leadership of Dr Matthias Schreiber as the Head of MAN Engines. The divisions of Strategy & Projects (Marcus Maria Ganseforth), Development (Werner Kübler), Sales (Reiner Rößner) and Controlling (Olaf Heßling) have assumed the functional responsibilities.
MAN Engines develops, produces and sells a wide range of efficient diesel and gas engines for a wide variety of applications in numerous industries. In addition to use in the Group’s own trucks and buses/coaches, the high-speed MAN engines can be found in the commercial vehicles of third-party providers, in power generation and cogeneration systems, as well as the drives for agricultural machinery, rail, marine and special vehicles, amongst others. The power of the MAN engines ranges from 37 kW to 1,397 kW (50 hp – 1,900 hp) and is covered by 4 and 6-cylinder series, as well as 8 and 12-cylinder V engines. MAN Engines’ product range is completed by transfer cases and axles for buses/coaches and special vehicles.
