Daimler strengthens the Sindelfingen location. The world's largest production plant for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary next year, will receive investments of over 1.5 billion euros by 2020 "We are growing dynamically abroad and at the same time continue to invest heavily in our German locations Works agreement links investments that secure the future with equally necessary cost optimization. This approach is the basis of our success and the foundation of our 'Mercedes-Benz 2020' growth strategy. With the overall package, we are making Sindelfingen fit for global competition and securing employment, "said Daimler boss Dieter Zetsche.
New Mercedes model for Sindelfingen
Mercedes-Benz is planning twelve new models without a predecessor by 2020, "one of the twelve will expand production in Sindelfingen," said Daimler finance spokesman Hendrik Sackmann of the Autogazette. Traditionally, the E-Class rolls off the assembly line in Sindelfingen. A new shell, a new paint shop and a new assembly hall will be built for the new generation and their successors. A logistics center is also being built for the next E-Class.
The S-Class with its derivatives as well as the CLS and CLS Shooting Brake are also manufactured. In addition, production of the new AMG GT super sports car will soon start there.
Daimler secures jobs
The modernization will secure jobs in Sindelfingen in the long term. In return, cost reductions in the hundreds of millions of euros were agreed with the works council over several years. "It was important to us that employment was secured and existing collective bargaining agreements complied with. I am proud that the works council was able to bring a new vehicle to Sindelfingen in addition to the investment commitments. Together we have secured the future of the location beyond 2020 and can now with renewed confidence celebrate our 100th anniversary next year, "said Ergun Lümali, Chairman of the Works Council at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen location.
