Top Three Auto Factories in Germany

June 11, 2008

Mercedes-Benz has the majority of the entire steadfast factory in the planet, and the second and third most reliable plants are also found in Germany. According to the Auto Channel, this is the outcome of the “US Initial Quality Study,” a largely observed pointer of dependability in new cars published by the worldwide renowned market research company J.D. Power and Associates. The ultimate prize was won by the Mercedes-Benz plant in Sindelfingen, Germany, (near Stuttgart). Vehicles from this plant marked an average of merely 33 problems per 100 vehicles (33 PP 100). The average among all calculated factories was 118 PP 100. The Sindelfingen plant manufactures the CL, CLS, E, and S class models for Mercedes-Benz.

German automakers obtained second and third place honors as well. Porsche’s factory in Stuttgart, the factory where its 911 model is brought together, got the second-place “Silver Plant Quality Award.” The third place “Bronze Quality Plant Award” was bagged by the BMW factory in Regensburg, a Bavarian city northeast of Munich. German cars also emerged on top when assessed according to brand name

“These data speak volumes for the German auto industry, but they also are a testament to workers in Germany, especially in the machinery and equipment industry. When investors come to Germany, they know that they will have workers at their disposal who are trained in the latest technologies and who take precision and reliability extremely seriously,” says ,” noted Oliver Seiler, Director of the Mechanical and Electronic Technologies at Invest in Germany.
