Commercial Vehicle - - NEWS -

The cur­rent Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and CEO of Daim­ler In­dia Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles (DICV), Erich Nes­sel­hauf, will re­turn to Ger­many to take over global re­spon­si­bil­ity for man­u­fac­tur­ing and en­gi­neer­ing at Daim­ler Trucks be­gin­ning Oc­to­ber 01, 2018. A suc­ces­sor to Nes­sel­hauf would be an­nounced soon. Ex­pressed Hart­mut Schick, Head of Daim­ler Trucks Asia, that Daim­ler es­tab­lished a strong foot­print in In­dia un­der the lead­er­ship of Nes­sel­hauf. Join­ing Daim­ler’s In­dia pro­ject in 2008, Nes­sel­hauf carved out a lo­cal pro­cure­ment and sup­ply chain strat­egy, which gave it a big ad­van­tage in the lo­cal mar­ket and also helped it to for­ward its ex­port as­pi­ra­tions to other Asian and African markets. If the high lo­cal con­tent right at the start helped Daim­ler to tar­get the do­mes­tic vol­ume seg­ment, Nes­sel­hauf se­lected as well as hand­held lo­cal sup­pli­ers. He also got them to sup­ply to var­i­ous Daim­ler lo­ca­tions around the world. Ap­pointed as the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor and CEO in 2014, Nes­sel­hauf ad­vanced pro­duc­tion to cater to new ex­port markets. In­creas­ing do­mes­tic mar­ket share, the Chen­nai plant of Daim­ler came to build BharatBenz trucks and buses for lo­cal con­sump­tion, MercedesBenz buses for lo­cal con­sump­tion, MercedesBenz trucks for ex­ports, Fuso trucks for ex­ports, and Freight­liner trucks for ex­ports.
