A historic day for MAN

On the 29th June 2022, a historic decision set the course for the MAN plant in Nuremberg. In 2025 the company will start large-scale series production of battery packs. This will not only create 350 jobs, but will also secure the future of the site. The decision in favour of Nuremberg was made in very close cooperation between MAN management, the works council, the city of Nuremberg and the Bavarian state government, which has promised 30 million euros in technology funding.
