MAN’s anniversary milestone and heritage was highlighted at its stand.

MAN showcased a truck it manufactured in 1961 as well as the MAN TGX, which is aimed at the Middle East market.

The German company also launched its telematics system, MAN EcoStyle for the Middle East, which has been developed to improve fleet performance.

Franz von Redwitz, managing director of MAN Truck & Bus Middle East, said: “It is a great honour for us to celebrate our 100-year milestone together with our local importer, United Motors and Heavy Vehicles.

“From a construction standpoint, what sets us apart is our expertise in meeting the varying transportation needs of the industry including special application vehicles.”

Redwitz added about MAN’s role as a provider of construction vehicles.

“We also work extensively with European and local body builders, and are known for our ease of body installation. In construction, this is one of our main USPs, alongside robustness and traction capability.”
