100 Jahre Mercedes Werk

On 12 September, the Mercedes Sindelfingen plant celebrated 100 years of operation. The plant was founded in 1915 as a factory for aircraft engines and now has a workforce of around 35,000 staff, who produced approximately 370,000 cars last year alone. A jubilee open-air concert was organised on the factory premises as a ‘thank you’ to all the staff and to the region. The soul-pop singer Leslie Clio appeared as a special guest in the role of warm-up act, getting the crowd going before local heroes Die Fantastischen Vier came on to the Stageco stage and delivered a stunning show for around 24,000 visitors. The party ended in the most fitting way for a major jubilee event of this kind, with a grand fireworks display. Foto (c) welcome.net
