September 19, 2018 – Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, Deputy Prime Minister of the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg Thomas Strobl and numerous guests from politics, business and administration gained an insight into the future of mobility at Mercedes-Benz during the opening ceremony in Immendingen. The company has invested more than €200 million in the Test and Technology Center in the municipality northwest of Lake Constance. Across an area of 520 hectares, a new Mercedes-Benz research location has been constructed since the groundbreaking act in spring 2015.
As we open the Immendingen Test and Technology Center of Mercedes-Benz today, we open a door to the future. Here, Mercedes-Benz bundles competences with the goal of developing and testing new technologies and vehicles in just one location. By building a state-of-the-art technology center, Immendingen has gained a completely new economic perspective and is thus an excellent example of a successful structural change.
