After the acquisition MaxWatt will be integrated into the Turbo business of MDT and the new entity will operate under the name MAN Turbomachinery India Pvt. Ltd.

“By acquiring them we expand our portfolio and add steam turbines for numerous standard applications to our existing high end product range. At the same time we gain access to new customer groups and market segments. MAN Diesel & Turbo has always chased M&A projects, if they satisfy a sound strategic rationale. With MaxWatt there are close to zero overlaps in the product ranges, which is why it is an excellent match for us.”
