For some time, Scania and MAN have investigated different projects in the industrial area, mainly related to commercial vehicles, which would make it possible for the two companies to profit from synergies in research and development, manufacturing and sourcing.
This process has shown that a full realization of potential synergies requires a closer cooperation by combining the two companies, while maintaining the unique brand values of the respective companies.
At this stage no decision has been taken, as there are a number of outstanding issues of commercial and legal nature. A decision can be made only when these issues have been resolved.
Scania will not comment on the subject while the discussion is still ongoing. Further announcements will be made when appropriate.
