Man Diesel

MAN Diesel Becomes a European Company

The conversion of MAN B&W Diesel AG into a European Company (Societas Europaea, or SE for short) has been successfully concluded. At the same time the company will change its name into MAN Diesel SE, headquartered in Augsburg, Germany. By adopting SE status, the Executive Board intends to make the Diesel Engine Division of the MAN Group an even more international player showing a single face to the customer. At the same time, in order to better organize the working of its committees, the Supervisory Board , which is made up of an international team headed by Håkan Samuelsson, has been reduced from twelve to ten members, The Supervisory Board’s parity structure between the capital and the employee side will remain unchanged. Employee co-determination will be organised on a cross-border basis in future, too. At the end of April 2006, MAN Diesel was the first German company that, as part of the establishment of the SE, concluded an agreement with employee representatives from its European locations covering the formation of an SE works council. This committee is responsible for pan-European questions and its composition will also be international. The legal status of SE will also enable the MAN Diesel Group to integrate its European sites more strongly. This goal of stronger integration is also the reason behind the decision to rename the company. The focus in future will lie on “MAN”, and the name MAN Diesel will highlight the importance of Diesel Engines.
