Yates Construction Marks a Construction Milestone at the MBV Sprinter Van Manufacturing Facility

Yates Construction placed the final steel beam in the paint shop, bearing the signatures of Mercedes-Benz Vans (MBV) team members and the Yates Construction project team and subcontractors. The final beam signals significant progress in construction, and by April 2017 nearly all of the new plant buildings will be enclosed from weather. The current production area and administration building of the assembly plant in North Charleston cover 409,000 square feet. The new facility will additionally cover around 1.1 million square feet plus a 2.8 million square feet marshalling yard for finished vehicles.
