Mercedes-Benz Sprinter – production at the Düsseldorf factory.
With a workforce of some 6600 and an annual output of around 150,000 vans, Düsseldorf is Daimler AG’s main factory for vans. All the closed variants of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter – i.e. panel vans and crewbuses – roll off the production line here. The factory has a shop floor covering almost 700,000 square metres and produces almost 700 vans per working day by way of a three-shift system. Daimler invested almost 36 million euros in the factory in 2012.
A new combined heat and power station which cuts primary energy consumption at the factory by around 20 percent accounted for over a third of this investment volume. A particularly notable asset from the employees’ point of view is the new factory restaurant which sets a benchmark throughout the group. The Sprinter is also produced in Ludwigsfelde (Germany), Argentina, the USA, China and Russia.
