German heavy truck maker and engineering group MAN said its headquarters had been searched Tuesday as part of a European Union antitrust probe and that it was cooperating with investigators.

"MAN has pledged its full cooperation to the European Union's antitrust authorities in the antitrust proceedings against several European truck manufacturers," a statement said.

MAN added that it "does not tolerate any breaches of compliance," and that it "does not currently expect customers to have suffered prejudice."

It provided no further details regarding the EU probe.

Officials at rival Daimler, the world's largest maker of heavy trucks, were not immediately available for comment.
