The Mercedes-Benz plant in Bremen is preparing to receive another model, the GLC Coupe, and the company said it would take on 200 temporary workers as permanent employees to support the extra output.
Mercedes-Benz unveiled its BMW X4 competitor two weeks back, during the New York International Auto Show, a model that the three-pointed start premium brand decided to make it at its Bremen plant in Germany. To support the increase of the production process, the company is creating 200 new permanent jobs at the factory, a move that also comes as a result of an agreement between the plant’s management and the works council. Last year, both sides agreed on a transformation of the Bremen site, which included the investment of more than 750 million euros in the modernization and expansion of the facility.
Bremen is currently operating on full power and, besides the GLC Coupe production, its lines will also receive another new model later in the year, the C-Class Cabriolet. In total, ten different cars will then roll off the assembly lines in Bremen: the saloon, estate and coupe versions of the C-Class, the coupe and cabriolet of the E-Class, the SUV GLC, as well as the SLC and SL roadsters. The Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen is the biggest private employer in the region with more than 12,500 workers, being rewarded with the “Factory of the Year” title in the large-scale production category last year.
