New CEO at Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary

Appointments

Jens Bühler took up the position of director and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary in Kecskemét this January.

In his new role, Bühler, who has held various management positions at the company for 21 years, is responsible for the ongoing expansion of the plant and the integration of future models of the MMA (Mercedes-Benz Modular Architecture) and MBEAM (Mercedes-Benz Electric Architecture Midsize) platforms into production.  

After studying mechanical engineering, Jens Bühler joined the company in 2003 as a specialist for production processes and materials technology at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant. After various roles in process design, he took over the management of production planning for the MRA series (GLC and E-Class) at the Beijing Benz Automotive Company (BBAC) plant in Beijing in 2014 and played a major role in the construction of the BBAC MRA II plant expansion. Later, he was responsible for the design of the Kecskemét plant expansion project and, from 2018, for the development of the strategic direction and management model of Mercedes-Benz Operations.

In 2021 he became the leader of the Global Factory Planning area at Mercedes-Benz. In this position, he played a major role in the transformation of Mercedes-Benz cars' production planning functions and laid down the design guidelines for Mercedes-Benz AG's future factories.
 
"It is a great honor to be appointed as director at the head of a factory that I was previously responsible for expanding. Thanks to the ongoing expansion, Kecskemét will become one of the world's most important Mercedes-Benz plants. The coming years will bring exciting challenges with the introduction of future 'Made in Kecskemét' models, and I am counting on the great team at Kecskemét to help me achieve this," said Bühler.
 
Bühler took over the management of Mercedes-Benz Manufacturing Hungary from Christian Wolff, who managed the plant for eight years.
