Pinetown Production Plant Green Solar Panels

In the MAN Truck & Bus Group, the MAN assembly plant location is in the developing Westmead Industrial area where the production and sale of MAN CLA, VW and bus chassis are produced.

The new roof is the opening gambit of the MAN Pinetown Assembly Plant’s 'Green Factory' initiative; roofing that allows more natural light to go through will be installed. As a long term goal, our roofs will also have solar panels installed, in order to create a sustainable energy supply which will reduce our CO2 emissions and our carbon footprint, as well as help savings in energy costs.

Quality for the assembly plant means that we achieve 100% quality vehicles and our machinery and facilities produce at maximum levels.

Lean Assembly Project

Lean assembly is a project aimed at eliminating any form of waste within our manufacturing process by streamlining our processes to improve efficiency and productivity. Our objective is to shorten the assembly line, improve operator utilization and improve visual standardization within the plant.
