Tradition and innovation –  MAN Diesel & Turbo in China

As early as 1898, Gutehoffnungshütte Ironworks (GHH), one of MAN's predecessor companies, shipped its first piston steam engine to Tangshan (now Hebei Province). Only few companies can look back on such long business relations with China.

China as one of the fastest growing economies belongs to the main markets for engines and machinery of MAN Diesel & Turbo. 

Today, over 600 employees work in MAN Diesel & Turbo offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Dalian, Zhoushan, Fuzhou and Shenzhen, as well as in the MAN Diesel & Turbo workshop in Changzhou, fabricating compressors, turbines, gear systems and turbochargers.
