Daimler AG Mercedes-Benz Werk Bremen: Over six million cars with the star made in Bremen

The Daimler AG plant in Bremen is Mercedes-Benz’ second largest car plant worldwide. Over 313,000 vehicles – more than ever before – rolled off the production lines here in 2011. With over 12,800 employees, the plant is the largest private employer in the region and is continuing a long automobile tradition.

The first Mercedes-Benz car rolled off the production line in Sebaldsbrück in 1978. To date, over six million cars with the star have left the plant.

The plant in Bremen also enjoys a very high standing within Daimler AG. Eight different models result in an extremely broad product range. For example, the plant produces C-Class sedans and estates. Further additions were the C­­­-Class coupé in June 2011 and the Black Series version of the C 63 AMG coupé in 2012. The team also possesses con­­siderable expertise when it comes to roadsters. 1989 marked the intro­duc­­­­tion of the two-seater SL. This was fol­­lowed in 1996 by the SLK, whose third gen­­­­­­­er­­ation premièred in March 2011. The new SL generation has been delivered to cus­­tomers since the end of March 2012. The cult roadster hits the streets with a 100 per cent alumin­­ium chassis, demonstrating the plant’s expertise in light­­weight construction. The list of models from Bremen also in­­cludes the coupé and E-Class cabriolet, with the compact sports utility vehicle GLK pro­­viding the finishing touch.

The plant will continue to play a vital role in the global Mercedes-Benz pro­­duction network in the future. As part of the introduction of the next gener­­ation C-Class, it will become a centre of excellence for this high-volume series.
