Although MBUSA was founded in 1965, importation of Mercedes-Benz vehicles actually began in 1952 under Max Hoffman. Mr. Hoffman was a driving force behind the car that cemented the identity of Mercedes-Benz in America: the iconic 300SL Gullwing.
By 1957, Mercedes-Benz was in a position to expand its reach in the United States and entered into a distribution agreement with Studebaker-Packard Corporation. Eight years later, the company struck out on its own, forming Mercedes-Benz USA.
Over the following years, MBUSA grew into a nationwide organization, now employing over 1,600 people. The company also has 362 associated dealerships that employ over 22,000 people themselves.
