200,000th Mercedes-Benz truck rolled-off at Aksaray plant

There were cheers at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Aksaray when the 200,000th truck built at the facility rolled-off the assembly line. The plant's employees celebrated the milestone together with Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard, Member of the Daimler AG Board of Management
with responsibility for Daimler Trucks & Buses, Stefan Buchner, Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Gerald Jank, Head of Production Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Rainer Genes, Head of Mercedes-Benz Türk, and Klaus Pfeifer, Plant Manager in Aksaray.

Turkey is the world's third-largest sales market for Mercedes-Benz Trucks after Brazil and Germany. Mercedes-Benz Trucks sold roughly 17,000 units in Turkey in 2013.

"The Aksaray plant is a key component of our Mercedes-Benz Trucks production network," said Stefan Buchner. "The milestone we're celebrating today underscores that fact: 200,000 trucks - that also means 200,000 vehicles in top Mercedes-Benz quality thanks to our highly qualified and dedicated employees. I'm confident that this will allow us to continue our success story in Aksaray."
