MAN Nutzfahrzeuge has opened the new engineering centre at its Munich plant. On 15th February 2008 Prof. Dr. Karl Viktor Schaller, Director Engineering & Purchasing at MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG, inaugurated the new building in the presence of important local representatives from the authorities and the poltical scene and from the general contractor for the project, Bilfinger Berger AG - Hochbau. Striking in its architecture, the new centre was built in only 14 months. It provides ultramodern workplaces for some 200 employees from the Development and Engineering departments and from Plant Security.

"This investment underlines MAN Nutzfahrzeuge's commitment to creating additional development capacity for our innovative vehicle concepts at the Munich plant and thus to reinforcing our success on the international markets as well," said Prof. Schaller at the opening ceremony.

The new engineering competence centre is based on a transparent open-space concept. Lots of glass and space give it an open and bright atmosphere. Each floor of each of the two wings houses about 30 workplaces. The open-plan offices promote fast and efficient communication among the people working there.

This new complex is part of the extensive programme of investment for the Munich plant: by 2012 MAN Nutzfahrzeuge will have invested at total of 190 million euros in new buildings and machinery, in structural improvements in truck production and logistics and in expansion of the R&D capacity.
