More than 200,000 Sprinter and Metris vans have been assembled in North Charleston and delivered to destinations in the U.S. since June 2006. At that time, the small Charleston plant was performing semi-knockdown (SKD) assembly and was better known as DaimlerChrysler Manufacturing International (DCMI) with a team of 100 employees. Today the Mercedes-Benz Vans facility in North Charleston employs more than 1,600 people.
"At MBV Charleston our plant strategy: building solutions through collaboration and empowerment to enrich people's lives, is founded in our company culture," said Arnhelm Mittelbach, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Vans, LLC. "We look forward to a bright future ahead as we continue building solutions that enrich people's lives"
