Daimler and Rolls-Royce
acquired RRPS via a 50:50 joint venture in 2011. The
company, based in Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance,
was operating at that time under the name Tognum AG.
Rolls-Royce took over the industrial management of
RRPS and has since then consolidated the company. In
the past three years, RRPS has developed positively
under the industrial management of Rolls-Royce.
Since the beginning of the cooperation, Rolls-Royce
and Daimler engaged in an ongoing and close dialog
on the best possible industrial development of RRPS.
For this purpose, it was concluded that the complete
acquisition of the joint-venture company by Rolls-
Royce would create optimal prerequisites. The supply relationships until 2025 agreed upon between Daimler and RRPS are unaffected by the sale of the shareholding. This means that there will be no impact at Daimler on its manufacture of products for RRPS. Each year, Daimler supplies RRPS with an average of about 18,000 heavyduty
and medium-duty diesel engines, i.e. engines in the so-called low-power range (LPR).
