MAN traces its origins back to 1758, when the St. Antony ironworks commenced operation in Oberhausen, Germany, the first heavy-industry in the Ruhr region. In 1908 after a number of acquisitions, the company was renamed Maschinenfabrik Augsburg Nurnberg AG, or MAN. The corporate predecessors of MAN were responsible for numerous technological innovations, including cooperation in the development of the diesel engine. By 1924, the company showed its first diesel truck at the Berlin Motor Show. After WWII, MAN shifted focus to commercial vehicles and became famous for its line of trucks, from delivery vans to heavy-hauling over-the-road rigs. Shop here
