From Germany to Alsace… Mercedes Trucks has invested in a new 2,700 m2 chassis assembly unit in Molsheim. The parts to be produced there are intended for military vehicles. The new production unit has received an investment of 2.5 million euros and created around 50 jobs.
The 14.5-tonne chassis today produced in Molsheim were formerly manufactured in the German plant at Wörth-am-Rhein, (Rhineland Palatinate).
