Chain Management: "We are ramping up our C-Class production as planned
with the start of production in South Africa. Our youngest model is received
very well by customers around the globe. The additional production capacities
in East London are thus available at the right time to optimally serve the
wishes of our customers."
Bremen plant, in its capacity as the so-called lead plant, is controlling global
production of the C-Class – from the tooling strategy to the training of the
colleages from the international plants to production quality. With this, the
company ensures top quality at all production sites from the outset. In total,
some 500 employees from the international plants - among them more than 200
from East London - completed intensive training also in Germany in order to
pass on their knowledge as multipliers in their respective home plants.
