The new press plant at the Mercedes-Benz factory in Kecskemét is already under construction

The new press plant under construction – with about 23,000 square meters – will operate as part of the existing factory in Kecskemét; production is expected to start in 2022. Thanks to the technologies used in the new press plant, the processes of design, development, engineering, tool making and manufacturing become even more manageable. The special significance of the development is that in the future the compact vehicles manufactured at the Kecskemét factory will consist of an even higher proportion of components made exclusively on site.

During operation – as it is already the case with the first press plant – the company attaches great importance to sustainability: almost 100% of the waste materials generated in the future production processes are recycled.

The investment will provide employment for about 200 workers. The capacity expansion announced previous year will be realized for an amount of more than 100 million Euros, the construction is progressing according to plan; currently the earthworks for the preparation of the foundation are already in progress.
