Conveyor technology for new C-Class in South Africa

Daimler plant East London – South Africa

In August 2018, AFT Bautzen received an order from Daimler to supply skid conveyor technology for the new shell at the East London – South Africa plant.

Almost 29 years after the production of the famous “Red S-Class” for Nelson Mandela after his release from prison, this plant will be used to produce the upcoming C-Class (W206).
For the required new bodyshop, an existing hall will be expanded and gradually filled with life. At the present time this hall is still under construction. The realisation of the conveyor technology should begin in summer 2019.
