Asan announced that Daimler Trucks Korea hosted a grand opening event in Eumbong-myeon for their new Mercedes-Benz Trucks Delivery Center on April 24th.
Daimler Truck Korea, a company that imports and sells commercial trucks, was looking for a site to build their new delivery center dedicated to Mercedes-Benz trucks, then decided to build it in Eumbong-myeon, Asan, as the site offers a lot of benefits as a delivery center.
The Mercedes-Benz Truck Delivery Center is built in Eumbong-myeon, Asan, on a site that is 132,000㎡. The facility is 50,900㎡ in total and it is operated by Seokwang Industrial Co. Asan (CEO Na Seung Yeop), an affiliate of Seokwang Industurial Co. (CEO Na Bong An), which has the capability to manufacture and engineer special and commercial trucks.
50,000,000,000 KRW have been invested into building this facility and Asan promised active administrative support to Daimler Truck Korea last September as they were signing the investment agreement with Seokwang Industrial Co.
Once the driver training center and the service center technician school are established, a maximum number of 2,000 visitors per year are expected to the city, which in turn will benefit the local economy in the tourism sector.
For the opening event, Wolfgang Tyson, the Director of Mercedes-Benz Truck Europe and International Sales Department, Weert Borner, the Charge d'affaires of the Embassy of Germany in Korea, Jo Kyu Sang, the CEO of Daimler Truck Korea, Na Bong An, the CEO of Seokwang Industrial Co., Na Seung Yeop, the Seokwang Industrial Co.

The CEO of Daimler Truck Korea said, “We are pleased to open the Mercedes-Benz Truck Delivery Center here in Asan, bringing us one step closer to achieving our long-term goal of becoming the most trustworthy truck brand. The new delivery center will be the hub of “road efficiency”, the innovative efficiency model that strives to maximize the delivery efficiency for our customers.”
