Company website:
MCV (Manufacturing Commercial Vehicles) was established in 1994. It became the general agent for Daimler AG in Egypt. In 1995 MCV started assembling trucks from both Germany and Brazil. In 1998 MCV established its own bus factory. The current (2013) range consists of a large number of models, from midibuses to high-floor coaches. Beginning of 2014 new MCV 220 midibuses were put into service in Cairo. Those are built on Chevrolet chassis, indicating MCV does not build exclusively on Mercedes chassis anymore.
In 2002 MCV took over the Marshall business in the United Kingdom and started building models for the British market. The single decker was initially called the Stirling, in 2004 it was modernised and called the Evolution. It is mainly built on MAN chassis. Somewhere around 2010 MCV started collaborating with a Chinese bus builder (probably Foton), assembling the buses in Egypt under model names E10, E20, E30, E40 and E50.
In 2007 MCV took over De Haan in South Africa, modernized the factory and restyled some of De Haan's models, calling them S125 and S140. They also offered th MCV 600 in a three-axle version, the 260 and the C120R on Scania and MAN chassis. For models see the MCV South Africa page.
