Mercedes-Benz Tuscaloosa / USA

Besides the M- and R-class, the GL and GLK is fabricated at the Mercedes-Benz Werk Tuscaloosa / USA.

The plant operates in 2 shift production and produces 200 vehicles per shift. For the integration of the new W/X-166 into the existing systems, ROFA realizes the retooling of assembly plant 2, whereas door line, final EMS, skillet system and frontend module line have to be reworked. Additionally modifications, like integration of handling devices and buffer areas in trim and final line will be done.

For the new „Log Engine Line" ROFA realizes a roller conveyor with automated trailer loading and unloading for the transport of engines / gears on pallets.
