MAN Truck & Bus is all set to restart their truck production.
MAN Restarts Limited Truck Production
Production had been at a standstill for six weeks since 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 again. The restart in Munich was attended by Bavarian Prime Minister Dr. Markus Söder early Monday morning.
The restart in MAN truck production is a very good signal for their workforce and customers. However, there is no reason for euphoria yet. MAN will approach their usual production levels only step by step. Production remains subject to major uncertainties. The wiring harness suppliers in Ukraine that produce wiring harnesses for MAN are currently able to manufacture and deliver again, albeit at a low level.
In addition, MAN is on schedule with the duplication of wiring harness production in other countries. Initially, however MAN will have significantly fewer variants in its range and with a high degree of uncertainty will ramp up step by step. MAN is systematically adhering to its restructuring program in connection with the company's transformation. Due to the reduced production program, the company will have to continue to use the instrument of short-time working at its German sites.
