Rainer Ruess, vice-president
responsible for manufacturing at the East London plant of Mercedes-Benz South Africa (MBSA) said that this shipment reaffirms that USA customers remain extremely satisfied with the consistent manufacturing quality from the South African plant. As recently as July J. D. Power and Associates presented a second Gold Award for Initial Quality to the MBSA plant (following a similar award in 2009). In 2010 this SA-based plant won the world’s most coveted Platinum Award for the best quality plant anywhere on the globe supplying cars to the USA market.  These J.D. Power Awards result from USA surveys conducted among over 80 000 new car owners annually.
