HBPO delivers front-ends for Mercedes A-Class

Assembly of the new Mercedes A-Class, the “W177” from the MFA2 series, started at HBPO in Rastatt on March 5. “Alongside the new design, a new alignment concept of the front-end module components and the integration of an air control system, the implementation of the MFA2 production in the current line was a great challenge for the team,” says Andreas Fischer, Plant Manager HBPO Rastatt. Since the plant is working to full capacity, this was only possible at the weekends.

The run-up curve for the new A-Class will be reached in June 2018 – and the next variant is already on the starting blocks.
