"Vietnam is a fast growing country with great potential for the Tognum Group with its strategy of worldwide regional expansion,” said Rainer Breidenbach, member of the executive board of Tognum AG and responsible for the Engines business unit, at the signing ceremony. “Our new partner V-TRAC enhances our strategic sales and service access in the Southeast Asian market significantly,” he added. Relevant market segments for mtu in Vietnam are engines and propulsion systems for applications as locomotives, construction and industrial machinery, ships, offshore oil and gas exploration and mining vehicles as well as diesel and gas based power generation.
Over 100 illustrious guests from the world of business and government agencies were welcomed to the signing ceremony by Peter Kneipp, CEO of the Tognum subsidiary MTU Asia. “The appointment of V-TRAC is a great leap forward for us.
