MAZ Truck Plant was founded in 1947.
It all started in the winter of 1998.
In January, the goal was set for the staff of the Office of the Chief Designer of the Minsk Automobile Plant: to develop as soon as possible the documentation and the layout of the new truck tractor, which is planned to be produced at the recently created Belarusian-German enterprise MAZ-MAN.
The basis was one of the serial models of the capital's automobile plant, the most convenient for alteration, the 2-axle MAZ-5432 autotractor, so the novelty received the MAZ-MAN-543265 index.
And truck makers completed this task within three months. At that time, Minskers already used MAN engines for their vehicles, so the installation of a German cabin caused the main difficulty.
45 percent of the first truck consisted of imported components. These included a German engine, a fully equipped cab and standard paint, gearbox, clutch, a number of pneumatic elements, etc.
But the frame, axles, front axle, saddle were made at MAZ.
