MAN Truck & Bus is upping the pace of its transformation and the associated expansion of its plant in Krakow in Poland. The foundations were laid in a celebratory ceremony. MAN is investing around EUR 130 million in the expansion of this production plant. By September 2022, the production site is set to be extended by around a third in terms of area and fitted out as a volume balancing plant for HGVs. This will enable some 300 vehicles and cabs to roll off the production line with employees working in three shifts. To guarantee the sustainability of the site, a new bio-energy source will ensure that the plant is CO2 neutral in the future.This work will just about treble capacity at the Krakow plant. After the expansion, Krakow will employ around three times more staff than before, creating some 1,500 extra jobs at the Polish site. The area of the extended plant will increase from 24 to around 41 hectares.This expansion work will see the construction of a new 26,000 square meters hall for cab production and another 10,000 m2 hall for the Truck Modification Center. This will enable MAN to offer the entire truck range with maximum quality in Krakow and the main plant in Munich, where space will be used for mixed production of conventional and electric trucks. Krakow and Munich will be a pair of strong partners in the truck network.
