Mercedes-Benz closed a very successful year again

The Mercedes-Benz plant in Kecskemét produced once again more than 190,000 cars in the business year 2018 – achieving a net turnover of over 3,5 billion Euro.

However, last year was important for the plant not only because of the turnover and production figures. Several milestones were added to the history of the plant: start of production of the new A-class, the one millionth car rolled of the assembly line, the CLA, which is made exclusively in Kecskemét, winning two valuable international quality awards, and the opening of the Mercedes-Benz Academy Kecskemét, where future car industry experts are educated with the use of the most modern technologies.

“Since the start of production in 2012 the plant in Kecskemét is the synonym of stability and excellent quality. In the business year 2018 we achieved outstanding results in figures as well as in quality and our colleagues are to thank for our success” - says Mr. Josip Niksic, finance director
of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary Ltd.

Mercedes-Benz Hungary Ltd, the Hungarian subsidiary of Daimler AG, closed the previous year with a turnover of 108 billion HUF, which is a 7% increase compared to the result of the year before.
