Video: Mercedes-Benz begins slowly restarting production

09 June 2020

When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out and supply chain interruptions halted much of the automotive parts needed for production of vehicles, Daimler, along with every automotive OEM, suspended production of vehicles in April.

After months of suspended operations, Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz line has successfully restarted production slowly with the engine and component plants in Germany being the first to resume production.

The international Mercedes-Benz production sites have also incrementally resumed production in parallel with the design to be flexible and adapt to developments involving COVID-19 and meet with country-specific regulations. The company said it is continuing its product and electric offensive to meet demands for vehicles coming from China, the largest sales market for vehicles in the world.

The Mercedes-Benz Untertürkheim plant, which produces engines and components for assembly plants globally, restarted production in April after a swift suspension period. Gradual restarts of production have also begun at other plants in Berlin, the plant in Sindelfingen and at the Mercedes-Benz Bremen plant.
