Additional 35,000 sqm production area
Kölleda - MDC Power GmbH, a subsidiary of Daimler AG, held a groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of its engine plant in Thuringia yesterday. The new building covering an area of 3.5 ha will be completed mid 2016. At the turn of the year 2017/18 the production start is scheduled for the new Otto engines - a 4-cylinder power unit.
However, this expansion is not the first one at MDC Power in Kölleda. Since 2001, when the final decision was made for the location Kölleda, the company has invested in some considerable expansions, and meanwhile about 1,700 people are working at MDC and its local service providers.back
