Daimler resumes engine production at Mercedes in Germany

Daimler (DE:DAIGn), parent company of Mercedes-Benz, is gradually opening its plants in Europe using lessons learned from resuming production at its plant in China, to ensure that the coronavirus does not spread among workers in Germany.

“Anywhere we can not guarantee a 1.5 metre distance, employees are required to wear face masks,” said Frank Deiss, vice president of powertrain production.

Daimler has spread out shifts so that workers no longer run into each other.

Unlike Italy and Spain, Germany never banned car production, though factories came to a standstill after authorities restricted the movement of people and ordered the closure of car dealerships, hitting demand.

Mercedes-Benz plants in Hamburg, Berlin and Untertuerkheim will also resume production this week, with plants in Sindelfingen and Bremen also making preparations to ramp up production.
