After months of speculation, one of the most famous and respected automakers in the world has chosen metro Atlanta in the relocation of its U.S. headquarters, Georgia’s governor announced.
Some media outlets stated Mercedes, which is currently holed up in Montvale, N.J., where it has been for decades, will choose an area close to Perimeter Mall in Atlanta’s northern suburbs.
Gov. Nathan Deal today made the following statement on the announcement of Mercedes-Benz USA’s upcoming move to Georgia. “The relocation of Mercedes-Benz’s U.S. headquarters in Georgia is a huge win for our state,” said Deal. “This internationally renowned company is a pioneer in the automotive industry and I’m confident that its legacy of high-quality, innovative products will continue with the help of the Georgia’s pro-business environment and strategic resources. Much like the many other global companies headquartered here, Mercedes-Benz will find that Georgia’s community-based, community-driven support will benefit its employees during this time of transition. I look forward to building upon our new partnership in the years to come, and I thank Mercedes-Benz for entrusting its future success to Georgia.”
