February 03, 2015 – ATLANTA — At a press conference today at the Georgia State Capitol, Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) announced the permanent and interim locations for its new corporate headquarters in Atlanta. Company President and CEO Stephen Cannon made the announcement with Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.
MBUSA, which is currently headquartered in Montvale, New Jersey, will construct a new, state-of-the-art headquarters facility on a greenfield site located at the corner of Abernathy and Barfield roads in Sandy Springs, expected to be completed in early 2018. Set near the intersection of Georgia 400 and Interstate 285, the approximately 12-acre parcel rests in one of Atlanta’s largest and most sought-after commercial districts, offering numerous hotel, retail and restaurant options with easy access to public transit and Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
“Mercedes-Benz is a marquis brand which deserves a marquis setting,” Cannon said. “Our ambition is to be more than just a great car company – we want to be among the best companies in the world, and Atlanta will serve as the perfect foundation to foster that ambition for the future. We are looking forward to calling Atlanta home.”
Beginning July 2015, the company will move into temporary office space at Sterling Pointe II, a 186,000-square-foot, Class A office building at the Perimeter Center complex in the neighboring city of Dunwoody.
“Mercedes-Benz USA’s planned headquarters location in Sandy Springs is great for the city, metro Atlanta and for the entire state of Georgia,” said Governor Deal. “I want to thank Mercedes-Benz USA and its leadership team for its decision to call Georgia home.”
As part of the relocation, the automaker plans to hire hundreds of new employees from the Atlanta area. MBUSA will continue to maintain several operational business units in both Montvale and Robbinsville, New Jersey. Additional details on the new Sandy Springs facility, as well as MBUSA’s Atlanta recruiting efforts, will be released in the coming weeks.
