Khodrocar - Scania was founded in Malmö, Sweden in 1900 and is now a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group. Scania's shares are traded on the Stockholm Stock Exchange and the Oax Exchange. In 1891, Philippe Versen established a factory for the manufacture of railroad cars. After making preparations, he named the complex "Wabis", which means the wagon plant, which had its production plant in the Sudetlia area.
On the other hand, in 1900 a bicycle factory was founded by Gustav Eriksson in the industrial city of Malmo, Scania. The company gradually shifted to producing cars and trucks until the two companies merged in 1911 to create Scania-Wabis.
The company logo was considered a dragon with a crown on its head and fire coming out of its mouth. In those years, different cars were produced and a number of boats were also produced with a 12-horsepower 4-cylinder engine. The company's production gradually expanded and its production lines were established in Denmark and Norway.
Scania-Wabis soon moved on to producing a very thin, tire-powered 24-person bus. The company's next job was to produce fire trucks with 60 hp and speeds of 40 km / h. Scania's first eight-cylinder engine was produced in 1916, which was powered by alcohol or gasoline, but by the early 1920s, the company's policy was to focus on truck and bus production.
In 1940 Scania witnessed a wide range of managerial changes that made the company offer more modern and more sophisticated products by changing many solutions and programs, and by attracting young and creative engineers and forces, thus increasing its popularity in the transport market. And public transportation will improve significantly.
But with the onset of World War II, Scania reduced the capacity of its factories to produce military products by reducing demand for trucks and public buses. By the end of the war, Scania had resumed production of its original products and was able to compete well with Volvo. So it became one of Sweden's largest car companies. Along with local successes, Scania also succeeded in global markets.
In 1969, Scania merged for the second time with a large Swedish subsidiary, Sub-Scania. But the popularity and popularity of the Scania brand made the management of the merged collection decide to launch Scania-branded products. The 1990s can be called the decade of development and production of various Swedish products in the heavy transport market.
Today, Scania trucks and buses have wide markets in various countries around the world. Volkswagen Group is currently the largest shareholder with 70.9% of Scania shares.
Two Iranian companies, Oghab Afshan and Mamut, are representatives of the production and assembly of the company's products in Iran, which manufacture buses, heavy motors and trailers under the license of the company in Iran.
Mamut Diesel Company, which is a subsidiary of Mamut Industrial Complex, operates as the exclusive distributor of Scania Trucks in Iran. It manufactures all types of diesel engines, trucks and buses. Since 2002, Oghab Afshan Company has been selling and assembling Scania products in Iran. In February 2016, Scania signed a contract with Oghab Sprinkler to deliver 1350 buses.
