There’s something we mere consumers must not be aware of, as a couple of major manufacturers are eyeing double digit increases in production output for the incoming year. First of all, Toyota had announced they will increase manufacturing outputs by 20% for 2012. Then this week, Mercedes announced its intention to increase their own output by 13%.
This news comes on the heels of record sales for the German manufacturer, and
despite the general economic uncertainties that have curbed consumer
spending, albeit only somewhat. Undoubtedly, this confidence in being able to move
such an increase in output stems from the fact that Mercedes has done
well in new markets, such as China and India.
“Mercedes-Benz is going on the attack,” said Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler board member for
manufacturing and procurement.
“We are securing our path to the top by extensively investing in the
expansion of our high-performance production network.”
