Mercedes-Benz do Brasil manufactures its two-millionth commercial vehicle

Mercedes-Benz do Brasil has cause to celebrate as the two-millionth locally produced commercial vehicle rolls-off the assembly line 57 years after the company inaugurated its plant in the country. The impressive production figure breaks down into around 1.4-million
trucks and 600,000 buses and bus chassis. The milestone also underscores the crucial position that the Latin American country plays in Daimler Trucks' and Daimler Buses' global development and production network.

"Daimler Trucks began operating in Brazil way before the country was considered an up-and-coming economy," said Stefan Buchner, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks Europe and Latin America, on the occasion of an event in the plant about the beginnings of Mercedes-Benz do Brasil in the 1950s. "The country is now one of our key truck sales markets. Brazil will continue to play an important role for our company's global growth in the future."
