Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG Acquires Engine Business of MWM and Südbremse-München
Restructuring of the Company Organization
In 1985, Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG (KHD) acquired 85 percent of the shares of MWM and Südbremse-München. As a result, the entire organization of KHD, MWM, and Südbremse-München was restructured. The products of Südbremse-München were relocated to Cologne and Mannheim. In 1986, Südbremse-München was closed. The production programs and fields of responsibility at MWM and KHD underwent substantial changes. The large engine series of Deutz and Südbremse Motoren was relocated from Cologne and Bremen to Mannheim. Consequently, up to 30 different engine types (Südbremse, MWM and Deutz) were built and managed in Mannheim. At the same time, the profitable MWM service business was transferred to the parent group Deutz.
