The car manufacturer Daimler is now aware of its plans for the Mercedes-Benz plant in Berlin-Marienfelde. An update on the transformation process for the Group’s newest manufacturing location has been announced. The metal industry union announced that there was good news for Berlin as an industrial location and for the workers in the plant. The announcement made in 2020 that it would no longer invest in the location has become a positive example of a future-oriented renovation.
Just a year ago it was feared that half of the 2,500 jobs in the Berlin plant would be lost. In March, Daimler announced that it would develop software for its global production in Marienfelde and also build components for electric vehicles.
In the past few months, it is reported that further progress has been made in this direction. The plant could therefore be completely realigned and jobs could be preserved. With the stronger focus on electric drives, the Mercedes-Benz plant would, as an employer in the region, make the future Tesla car factory in the Brandenburg Grünheide competition.
