Scania-MAN Talks Reportedly Broken Off

Published onsdag 15 november 2006 kl 11.31
The saga continues..

A German newspaper reports that merger talks between Swedish truck-maker Scania and its German rival MAN have broken down.

According to “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” the gap between the two sides was too great. The foremost reason, the newspaper says, is that the two companies and the Swedish investment group Investor couldn’t agree on where savings would come out of a merger.

On Tuesday unions representing Scania workers spoke out against any deal as long as MAN employees have contracts guaranteeing them jobs until 2012. The Swedish unions said that would have meant that their members would have borne the brunt of any lay-offs following a merger.
