MAN is pursuing an international growth strategy, aimed beyond the key European market at developing markets in Asia, Africa, South America and Eastern Europe together with Russia. In India, MAN Trucks India Pvt. Ltd., a 100% subsidiary of MAN Truck & Bus AG, Germany, manufactures heavy trucks and buses, both for the Indian market as well as for export to Asian, the Middle East and African countries. The range of products manufactured includes Mining & Construction Tippers, Haulage Tractors and Multi Axle Trucks, from 16 t GVW to 49 t GCW as well as 16 tonne bus chassis for left hand and right hand drive.
The MAN CLA range of products manufactured by MAN Trucks India has made a mark not only in India but also has a significant presence in around 25 countries.
MAN Trucks India in the past six years since its inception has positioned itself as a key player on the technology platform by offering high quality and cost effective products. The company’s initial success came through off-road applications like trucks used in mining, construction and road building activities, which was mainly due to the inherent strength and robustness of MAN Tipper range. Later with introduction of haulage applications MAN Trucks India entered into mass market. The company had started its operations with only two products and today, within a span of six years is already offering 48 product variants. With the high degree of localization and an ultra-modern manufacturing infrastructure, the company is better poised to offer best-in-class solutions for diverse applications.
Currently in the prevailing market conditions, the company intends to relaunch the existing products for different applications with better payload capacities as well as improved aesthetics. Considering an obvious growth in the Indian infrastructure and mining segment, MAN Trucks India is also planning to expand its product range by introducing high-end models which will be based on advanced technology platform to meet the consequent market needs. Similarly, with the prospects of Euro IV coming to India soon, the company is focusing on Euro IV products as future portfolio
