In the heart of the Basque country.
The basis for what was to become one of the most important automobile and industrial centres in the world was created in northern Spain in 1954, in the middle of fertile land: the Vitoria works in the heart of the Basque country. From then on, vehicles made by Auto-Union left the production lines – for at least twenty years, after which Daimler-Benz AG took over the whole site.
Today, 75,000 vans per year are produced in an area of 600,000 square metres. This makes Vitoria Daimler AG’s second-largest van production works in the world. And also an important employer in the region: 3,500 employees work there and a total of 13,000 jobs depend indirectly on the vehicle manufacturing site.
