We are proud of our products: With our quality claim "Trucks you can trust" and our "Wörther Geist" we produce Actros (long-distance vehicle, our flagship for more than 20 years), Arocs (construction site vehicle) and Atego (the smallest light truck in the group) here in Wörth. In addition, at the Wörth plant we also make Mercedes-Benz special trucks such as the Unimog (a universal vehicle for every kind of application), the Econic (a truck with a low entrance for applications such as municipal applications and airports), and the Zetros (a heavy-duty special vehicle for special applications).
Of course we subject our vehicles to very strict testing. For this purpose we’ve got the development and testing center. There are numerous bad roads and different road profiles that represent the roads of the whole world. In this way, the same conditions can be provided for the test vehicles as are found, for example, in South America, South Korea, Africa and, of course, in Europe. The ECC also includes the runway with inclination angles of up to 49%, which can be used for functional testing.
When a finished truck rolls off our assembly line, there are various ways to get it to its owner. Here, too, we are very flexible in our orientation towards our customers. Many of them come to us in the Palatinate and pick up their new truck directly from the CustomerCenter. In addition to driver information on the new vehicle, driver training to improve fuel efficiency, road safety and sustainability and a large vehicle exhibition in the Industry Information Centre, my colleagues there also offer factory tours where visitors can take a look behind the scenes of our truck assembly.
