Central/Western European Manufacturers:
|Central European/Western European manufacturers are still dominated by German makers like Mercedes and MAN/VW. The French market is domestically dominated
by Renault although some notable mentions from prior decades like Saviem, Simca and a few others were once the favorites for those needing an off road capable truck in
the 1960's - 1980's. One relatively new comer to the traditional truck market is Volkswagen who acquired one of Germany's largest truck makers in the 90's M.A.N
which is a company founded in 1758. Here we also see some interesting Swiss makers such as Mowag , now owned by General Dynamics European Land Systems.
