Mercedes-Benz Vans, parent to the Daimler group’s Sprinter Vans line, announced a much-anticipated move stateside. For years the company’s Sprinter vans were built at a plant in Germany and then shipped to America to be sold. Now, with plans in motion to create a brand new facility in the U.S. for Sprinter production, the brand can be fully embraced by the ever-expanding market here. Read on to find out more!
Mercedes-Benz is making a significant investment to bring the production of their Sprinter van line to the United States. The plant that they will build in Charleston, South Carolina is projected to take a $500 million total to complete. But if anything, an investment of this size is indicative of the positive outlook for the North American van market; Daimler has faith that the already-successful Sprinter brand will be able to build and grow as its production becomes a “homemade” affair.
Sprinter Van Plant Spells Economic Growth for South Carolina
In addition to making domestic Sprinter vans available on the market, the new van plant will provide over one thousand jobs to Americans, which means good news for the regional economy. An expansion like this is bound to benefit everyone involved, bringing high-quality vans and many career opportunities to the U.S.
