Luxury automaker Mercedes-Benz could be moving it’s U.S. headquarters from Montvale, N.J. to Atlanta in the near future.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle spoke with spokesperson Rob Moran, who did not confirm nor deny the reports, but he did tell The Record that an announcement on a move may come at a company dinner in January.
The Montvale-based operation currently handles the distribution, marketing and customer service for all Mercedes-Benz products in the United States.
Mercedes, which has been in New Jersey since 1972, had considered moving its headquarters before. But they jettisoned those plans to uproot to neighboring New York because it was deemed too expensive and instead invested $8 million into upgrades and renovations at the Montvale office.
There is no word on the number of jobs that would be impacted or created in Georgia, nor the exact location of the new U.S. headquarters in the ATL if Mercedes moves.
According to reports coming out of New Jersey, Mercedes also wants to locate a service center for its hydrogen-fueled vehicles and that they have found a site on the other end of Georgia. The ABC suggests Mercedes are eyeing the port city of Savannah.
