At product level, the ‘MTU Onsite Energy’ brand for distributed power supply systems will be discontinued and merged within the mtu brand», stated the company.
The process started on June 15, when the five largest operating companies representing mtu products and solutions have been renamed. MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH will become Rolls-Royce Solutions GmbH. The names of the regional companies in America and Asia, and the German subsidiaries in Augsburg and Ruhstorf will include the appropriate geographical references.
