Further to this statement issued by MAN Truck & Bus overnight, as the local distributor of the MAN Truck & Bus brand, Penske Australia & New Zealand wishes to advise its customers that due to the restriction in truck production in Europe, the arrival of the new MAN truck generation (TG) to local markets has been delayed.
As stated by MAN Truck & Bus, the war in Ukraine is leading to massive supply gaps for truck wiring harnesses which is, in turn, impacting production.
As stated by Alexander Vlaskamp, CEO of MAN Truck & Bus, Ukrainian supply structures for truck wiring harnesses are being duplicated in other countries; however, this will take several months.
Penske Australia & New Zealand will continue to update our customers as we learn more from Europe.
Please note: MAN Truck & Bus’ production of buses has not been significantly affected.
