The Vitoria plant: modern and experienced
The Vitoria plant in the Basque country, the oldest van production site in mainland europe, is a modern but experienced factory. The first vehicles left its production halls 65 years ago. This experience in combination with the most modern methods and processes, first-class facilities and meticulously trained staff is the ideal basis for the production of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class and Vito model series. Thus the 5000 staff employed in Vitoria have received more than 400 000 hours of training in order to ensure that the new models are produced to the highest degree of quality and precision.
