MAN Engines, the business area for engines and components at MAN Truck and Bus is now an independent unit.

"The engine and component business of MAN Truck and Bus benefits from synergies with truck and bus/coach production,"said MAN Truck and Bus executive board member Production and Logistics, responsible for MAN Engines Business Unit in the Executive Board, Ulrich Dilling. "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."

From 2009 to 2017, Dilling led the international competence centre for engines in Nuremberg.

The MAN Engines business unit in Nuremberg is led by a management team of five people, with the leadership of Matthias Schreiber as the head of MAN Engines. The divisions of Strategy and Projects (Marcus Maria Ganseforth), Development (Werner Kübler), Sales (Reiner Rößner) and Controlling (Olaf Heßling) have assumed functional responsibilities.

MAN Engines develops, produces and sells a range of diesel and gas engines for a variety of applications. In addition to use in the Group's own trucks and buses/coaches, MAN engines can be found in the commercial vehicles of third-party providers, in power generation and co generation 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.
