Mercedes-Benz USA to Move Corporate Headquarters to Atlanta
Jan. 7, 2015—Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) announced Wednesday that it will relocate its corporate headquarters from Montvale, N.J., to Atlanta, Ga.
MBUSA executives and staff will relocate from its primary facility in Montvale to a temporary facility in Atlanta's Central Perimeter on an interim basis. The company will construct a new headquarters expected to be completed in early 2017.
MBUSA plans to begin moving employees starting in July 2015. The move, which will affect approximately 1,000 employees, will be phased to help minimize any disruption to business operations.
Several operational areas will remain in both Montvale and Robbinsville, N.J.
"Atlanta is a premier city which places us closer to our ever-growing Southeast customer base, our port in Brunswick, Ga, and to Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, our Alabama manufacturing facility, which accounts for half of the vehicles we sell here in the U.S.,” MBUSA President and CEO Stephen Cannon said in a release. “For our employees, Atlanta offers a strong quality of life, terrific schools and wonderful cultural and recreational opportunities."
