20th Celebration: Birth of Alabama Auto
More than two decades ago, Daimler AG surprised the world when it chose to put down roots in Tuscaloosa County. That decision has paid off—for all of us. Today Mercedes-Benz is responsible for more than 24,500 jobs—both here at our plant in Vance and through our suppliers across the region. With an annual economic impact of more than $1.5 billion, our success in Alabama has paved the way for many other automakers to call the South their home, too. We’ve invested $4.5 billion in our Alabama plant and we’re in the midst of another $1.3 billion plant expansion. We look back with pride at what we’ve accomplished, and look forward to all the possibilities yet to come.
