50 years of remanufactured engines from Mannheim
The plant celebrated a special anniversary in 1999: 50 years of remanufactured engines from Mannheim. Given the customary long service life of commercial vehicles, it has become normal practice to exchange a failing power unit not with a brand-new engine, but with one that is as good as new having been reconditioned. Here, time economy plays a vital role, since changing an engine can often be much quicker than attempting to repair a defective unit. In technical terms, remanufactured engines are equivalent to brand-new production engines, are at the latest stage of development and contain only genuine Mercedes-Benz parts. For these reasons, remanufactured engines have the same service life as new units and carry the same warranty. Annual capacity is high: in 1998, for example, the plant turned out around 6,000 remanufactured engines. Over the years this has made for a sizeable total. In 2006 the company celebrated the 500,000th remanufactured engine to come off the assembly line at Mannheim.

Mannheim milestones: By 2006 a total of 500,000 engines had been reconditioned at the Mannheim plant.

The plant at Mannheim has itself firmly establishedly with two pivot legs in the meantime. The engine production and the overhaul of exchange engines, the bus production on the other hand on the one hand.

90 years on: The new body-in-white center at the Mannheim plant in 1998.
