Mercedes To Restart Alabama Suv Plant Next Week After Parts Shortage

25

– Daimler AG’s (DAIGn.DE) Mercedes-Benz SUV plant in Alabama will resume production next week, the company said on Thursday, after being down this week because of parts shortages caused by a fire at a key supplier.

Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz U.S. International plant outside Tuscaloosa will gradually ramp up production as parts begin to arrive next week, the company said in a statement.

The same May 2 fire, at a Meridian Magnesium Products plant in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, caused Ford Motor Co to lose more than a week of production of its highly profitable F-series pickup trucks at three U.S. plants.
