MAN strengthens its position in Russia

MAN Truck & Bus the market leader again among European manufacturers in fiscal year 2011

For the second time in a row, MAN has emerged the number one among European manufacturers of commercial vehicles in Russia. With sales of over 7,600 trucks and 220 buses, MAN reached pre-crisis order volumes again in fiscal year 2011. Its market share for trucks of more than 12 tons was 26 percent in 2011 in the European brand segment.

"Efficient transportation solutions, reliable vehicles, and the satisfaction of our customers are the three pillars of our strategy," said Lars Himmer, Head of the MAN CIS Sales Region and Director of MAN Truck & Bus RUS. "Last year we saw clear signs of recovery on the Russian market. Our range of products places us in the vanguard of the growing trend toward efficient and ecologically sound vehicle concepts and will enable us to continue strengthening our position there," emphasized Himmer.

As recently as the end of 2011, MAN was able to conclude two major orders in Russia. 2,188 engines ordered by the company LIAZ have already been delivered. They will mainly be used to equip city buses in Moscow as well as in St. Petersburg and other Russian cities. The order for 50 MAN city buses from the city of Vladivostok shows that MAN's reputation in Russia is growing.

Russia is an important sales market in MAN's international growth strategy. In order to consolidate itself further still on the Russian market as a successful manufacturer of efficient commercial vehicles, MAN is investing around €25 million in setting up its own production facility in St. Petersburg.

The middle of 2012 will see MAN start production of heavy TGS WW trucks with Euro 4 engines. In the medium term, the St. Petersburg site is set to reach a production capacity of around 6,000 vehicles a year.
