Strong demand for Mercedes-Benz’ newest SUV has seen it outgrow capacity at its production facility in Bremen, Germany, with Benz turning to contract builder, Valmet to fill the gaps.

From its facility in Uusikaupunki, Finland, Valmet will add GLC production to a schedule that already includes the A-class small hatch.

As the GLC begins rolling out across right-hand-drive markets around the world, including Australia, the added production capacity provided by Valmet will help meet the demand for MB’s popular new SUV

Mercedes’ working relationship with Valmet has included the A-class since 2013, with the contractor expected to deliver 100,000 units during 2016. GLC volumes are set at a similar level.

"With Valmet Automotive we have an established and reliable partner offering state-of-the-art technology," Dr. Klaus Zehender, member of the divisional board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, procurement and supplier quality, said.

"We have been producing the A-Class there since 2013. We aim to continue this success story with the GLC."

Other members of Mercedes-Benz’ SUV family, the GLA and GLE are built in Rastatt, Germany and Tuscaloosa, Alabama in the United States respectively.

The GLC range launches this week starting from $64,500 for the GLC 220d in Australia, and TMR will bring you our first drive impressions over the next few days, so stay tuned.
