What does innovation mean to you?

Our innovation day speakers will reply to this question within the upcoming weeks.

TRATON GROUP is striving for a new era of transportation. Our brands MAN, Scania, and Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus are working with high speed on innovative, new products and services in areas such as e-mobility and digitalization.

But at TRATON GROUP, innovation is much more than products only: Modularization, Software & Systems and People & Collaboration are our drivers for innovation.

Modularization

Modularization is the key to success: our solutions are tailored to our customers – worldwide, quickly, and at a reasonable price. Fewer components, more variants: the customer stands to benefit, while TRATON gains speed and competitive strength.

Software & Systems

Digitalization offers us the opportunity to better meet the needs of our customers and our customers’ customers. Agility and flexibility increase. TRATON promotes sustainability, since greater efficiency always results in fewer resources being wasted.

People & Collaboration

TRATON stands out from its competitors because we work together as equal partners at all levels: with customers, partners, and within our Group’s brands.
