Mercedes-Benz has begun assembly operations at a new plant in Brazil. The facility, located at Iracemápolis, is a part of a worldwide production network as part of the “Mercedes-Benz 2020” growth strategy. Mercedes-Benz India has contributed to the development of workforce at this plant.

Workers for this new plant were sent to the Mercedes-Benz Chakan plant to familiarise themselves with the production processes. This was also done to integrate the new location into the international plant network through personal relations.

Speaking on the occasion, Roland Folger, managing director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “It’s a matter of immense pride for us that Mercedes-Benz India was chosen to train the Brazilian colleagues and familiarize them with the production process, towards setting up the new assembly plant in Iracemápolis. India is a forerunner amongst Mercedes-Benz’s assembly plants globally, and in the past we have already supported the plant in Vietnam in the global network. Both the teams gained in creating trust, a bond of friendship beyond cultures and continents, and being an ideal example demonstrating the strength of collaborative working.”

The first vehicle to roll off the Brazilian production line was a black C-Class Saloon and it will soon be followed by the GLA crossover later this year. Commenting on the milestone, Markus Schäfer, member of the divisional board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, manufacturing and supply chain management, said “The opening of the Mercedes-Benz Iracemápolis plant is a further milestone in the development of our flexible and efficient production network.”
