Mercedes-Benz has started building a new factory in Poland which it says will set new standards in terms of Industry 4.0 and green production.
The engine plant in the town of Jawor -- the auto maker's first manufacturing facility in Poland -- will act as a benchmark for engine production, Mercedes-Benz claims.
Alongside state-of-the-art technology, the plant will make use of digitisation, such as app-based applications for personnel and energy management. Meanwhile, responsive production systems are expected to enable a flexible approach to production, making it possible to produce different engine variants on the same line.
"Here in Jawor we have the opportunity to build a new plant for modern and highly efficient engines based on advanced standards and in accordance with our specific requirements," commented Dr Andreas Schenkel, chief executive of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Poland. "We have had very good experiences in cooperation with our Polish partners from politics and business, and we are looking forward to the further good cooperation here in Jawor."
The Jawor site is also expected to lead the way on resource-saving production processes. Together with energy suppliers and local authorities, Mercedes-Benz is developing solutions for CO2-neutral engine production through the use of wind power, solar energy or biogas applications.
Markus Schäfer, member of the Divisional Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, said: "The new engine plant in Poland is a key element in the growth strategy of Mercedes-Benz Cars. With the new site in Jawor, we are ensuring the efficient supply of our vehicle plants with highly efficient engines."
Daimler is investing around €500m in the new production site, which will produce four-cylinder engines for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.
