Brons Licensed To Build And Sell M.A.N. Four-Stroke Diesels
M.A.N. (Maschinenfabrik Augsburg- Nurenberg) AG, West Germany, and Brons Industrie N.V., Appingedam, the Netherlands, have signed a licensing agreement covering the construction and sale of M.A.N, four-stroke engines of type L/V 20/27 and ASL/ASV 25/30 with outputs ranging from 400 to 4,000 kw (540 to 5,440) at 1,000 rpm. At a later date, Brons is to extend its production activities to include larger four-stroke engines.
The main objectives of the agreement are to make the best possible use of the production facilities at M.A.N, and Brons through an appropriate division of the work involved in building the engines, to increase the sales potential of those engines, to tailor maintenance performance and spare parts supply more accurately to individual requirements, and to utilize the capacity of the Brons design departments for carrying out design work on behalf of M.A.N.
