Magnetics Business & Technology - September/October 2022 - 15

FEATURE ARTICLE
investing more than two billion euros into its European production
sites. This step marks a new phase of introducing next-generation
electric platforms in production, securing future employment at
European locations. The new production plan is the outcome of
constructive discussions with German employee representatives,
resulting in far-reaching measures to further increase flexibility and
efficiency.
Ergun Lümali, Dep. Chairman of the Supervisory Board and
Chairman of the Works Council of Mercedes-Benz Group AG: " It
is our job to ensure that the shift towards 'electric only' is fair. With
today's decision on the production setup, we are ensuring that this
remains the case. It's good news for the company, the locations
and most of all, for our employees. As employee representatives
we demanded German production sites continue to play a significant
role. The introduction of new technologies to our production
sites is the key to becoming future proof and to ensuring continued
employment. With investments into the new production setup, we
have ensured that vehicles with new electric architectures are built
at our locations, helping to secure production capacity. This gives
our colleagues, who have for decades worked for the three-pointed
star, security and a new opportunity. We demand that the same
should happen for our Powertrain-locations. The works council will
continue to work towards this goal. "
Sabine Kohleisen, Member of the Board of Management of
Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Human Resources and Labor Director:
" The shift toward an electric and digital future is a big challenge
and at the same time an opportunity. What is clear is that our
production portfolio is undergoing a transformation, and with it our
tasks and employment profiles. Today we have once again shown
that we, together with the works council, have reached viable and
forward-looking solutions for our production sites, our company
and its employees. I am delighted that we are able to offer our colleagues
new opportunities in future. "
The production portfolio already includes six all-electric MercedesEQ
models. These roll off the production line at six locations on
three continents and have been consistently integrated into ongoing
series production. Thanks to early investments into flexible
production and the use of the state-of-the-art MO360 digital
production system, Mercedes-Benz is already able to produce
battery-electric vehicles in large volumes. The batteries for the
Mercedes-EQ electric vehicles are supplied by the global battery
production network with factories on three continents. Local battery
production is a key success factor for Mercedes-Benz's electric
offensive. Mercedes-Benz has been producing CO2-neutral in
all of its own plants worldwide since this year and has also been
purchasing electricity in Germany that comes exclusively from renewable
sources (CO2-free) since this year.
Mercedes-Benz vehicle plants consistently implement electric
production
Thanks to highly flexible structures, the plants of Mercedes-Benz
AG can produce vehicles with different drivetrains on a single
production line. With the strategic goal of shifting to all electric,
the high degree of flexibility is a decisive advantage. It makes it
possible to adjust production at short notice according to market
demand.
