Daimler AG / EvoBus GmbH: Over 100 years of tradition – Mercedes-Benz in Mannheim

More than 100 years ago, Carl Benz founded the Mercedes-Benz plant on the Luzenberg in Mannheim.

While it was the primary goal in 1908 of building a functioning automobile, the plant today repre­­sents the complete production process in the worldwide pro­­duc­­tion group for commercial vehicles from crude iron to en­­gine con­­struc­­tion to the com­­plete assembly of city buses. With al­­most 8,000 highly qualified em­­­ployees working in the foundry, engine construction and bus production, the plant in Mann­­heim meets the modern challenges posed on commercial vehicles, diesel engines and urban buses.

Today, the Mercedes-Benz plant in Mannheim places a particular focus on innovative products, economical use of resources and environmental protection.

This trend towards state of the art and environmentally friendly technologies is documented, for example, by the competence centre for zero-emission mobility, in which vehicles with gas as well as hybrid drives are produced.

EvoBus Mannheim’s top priority is the development and production of the Mercedes-Benz Citaro – the world’s most successful city bus – as solo and artic­­ulated vehicles. Articulated vehicles are only produced in Mannheim.

In addition, we focus on the competence centre for alternative drive technologies. The development of hybrid and fuel cell buses as part of the future planning of EvoBus is the main area of interest here.

All of these measures ensure job security for the employees at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Mannheim, which at the same time is deeply rooted in the re­­gion and one of the largest employers and training companies in the Rhine-Neckar district.

As a result, the plant contributes considerably to the development of the business location. The high quality stand­­­ards demanded by the employees in Mannheim are reflected by the satisfaction of Mercedes-Benz customers around the world.
