Customised vehicle adaptations
Our extensive portfolio of MAN truck modifications fulfils virtually any requirement. We realise individual adjustments or complete system combinations exactly according to customer requirements. Our modular competence particularly lies in the modules: Driver's cab, chassis, driveline and electronics.
Each of our driver's cabs offers maximum living comfort and plenty of stowage space. In addition, we also implement any special individual requirements that you might have. Anything is possible, inside and out. Whether roof recesses, driver's cab reductions or extensions, driver’s cab glazing, bench seats or beds - our core competences cover any kind of customer specific driver’s cab modification.
Next to the engine, the chassis is the technical foundation of every vehicle. We take care of: fine tuning for axles and wheelbase changes, installation of additional axles, repositioning of leading and trailing axles, fitting of mechanical or hydraulic systems or adjustments to the wheelbase. Of course this also includes special body designs, additional equipment, and any other preparations.
Optimally adapted to your individual requirements, we integrate: specialised drive systems - manually, in form of a semi-automatic manual gearbox, or fully automatic, retarder for wear-free braking or for vehicles with driven attachments or body components or with low working speed.
We equip your MAN Truck with just the right electronic components for your ideal vehicle: from additional lighting, warning devices and radio technology through extra sockets, battery maintenance systems or exclusive infotainment to specific electronic solutions. This also includes programmability for the vehicle speed and rpm, control displays for driving instructors or additional fire-fighting equipment.
We prepare your MAN optimally for its specific area of application. Because every business is unique.

Safety at a glance: Video turning system (VAS) & MAN BirdView
Stay safely in control when turning and manoeuvring in traffic with the innovative video systems: Put an end to safety risks caused by blind spots and non-visible areas.
Video turning system (VAS)
Dangerous situations often arise when turning, manoeuvring or changing lanes. The reason is that truck drivers are unable to see the entire area on the right-hand side of the vehicle in particular: A blind spot remains, despite checking the rear-view mirror and ramp mirror. Other road users and objects simply cannot be seen from the driver's seat.
Our video turning system (VAS) offers a safe overview of the entire area next to your vehicle that was previously hidden. The 150° degree wide-angle camera mounted on the side of the driver's cab also captures the blind spot for you and transmits the video image either to the MMT dashboard or the monitor attached to the A-pillar on the passenger side.
For even more safety, we offer you an extension for your camera monitor system with additional ultrasonic sensors: The four sensors, which are mounted on the front and side of the vehicle, continuously capture the immediate environment. They reliably detect any object within a distance of up to two meters to the driver's cab. If another road user approaches your vehicle, an optical signal will inform you immediately. An acoustic signal sounds if an obstacle is within the hazard zone when you are getting ready to drive off.
MAN BirdView: 360° Camera System
A bird's eye view shows you the entire surroundings of your vehicle, including all blind spots. This is made possible by four HD cameras with a fisheye lens. Those cameras give you a 360° panoramic view of the immediate surroundings of the vehicle via the monitor in the cockpit. Master even the toughest manoeuvres with ease thanks to this complete overview. Minimise the risk of overlooking another road user or an obstacle when turning.
MAN BirdView is automatically enabled when your vehicle moves at less than 15 km/h. In addition, the view of the surroundings on your monitor adjusts according to the situation. The system takes into account the current speed, the setting of a cornering light or the gear selection, among other things. The monitor gives you an optimal overview in every driving situation, allowing you to manoeuvre with centimetre precision and turn safely.
