On March 14, 2017 the MAN Trucks heavy truck assembly plant in Niepołomice near Cracow, Poland, marked an extraordinary milestone. It produced its 90,000th truck since opening.

The milestone vehicle was a MAN TGS 18.420 4x2 BLS - TS semitrailer truck, which was received by Marek Sachs, managing director of Polish transport company Sachs Trans. Sachs Trans already operates a fleet of some 50 vehicles with the famous lion on the front.

The semitrailer truck handed over on March 14 is one of 80 vehicles Sachs Trans has ordered this year, and is the 90,000th truck the MAN plant has produced since it began operating in October 2007. At the facility near Cracow MAN produces trucks of the TGX and TGS model series, which are shipped all around Europe. It also produces heavy truck models for markets outside Europe and overseas.
