Premium Car Engines made in Thuringia for 10 years
"Speed, emotion and power - and that in perfect harmony - stands for the work at MDC Power GmbH" said Dr Sven Breitschwerdt, General Manager of the Daimler engine plant in Kölleda / Thuringia, "and we are eager for the next 10 years of engine construction in Kölleda."
But not only the founding of MDC Power GmbH 10 years ago has been celebrated. The 2,000,000th engine produced in this factory delivers another reason to be proud of.
Christine Lieberknecht, the Thuringian Minister-President, being guest of this festivity, showed herself impressed of the development which has the company gone through. "The MDC Power GmbH is a real growth engine and its engines excellently represent Thuringian high-quality work.
In 2003, MDC Power started the production of 3- and 4-cylinder engines for Mercedes Benz and Smart in Thuringia. Since then, a 3-digit million amount of Euro has been invested in this production site and meanwhile more than 1,400 employees are working at MDC Power and the surrounding service companies.
MDC Power GmbH's charity activities are exemplary, too. On the occasion of the anniversary the employees made a "Social Power Shift" and the company rounded off to the amount of 200,000 Euro for children and youth projects in the region.back
