Affalterbach. Home of Driving Performance.
As a high-performance brand and part of a globally active group of companies, it is our duty to develop sustainable technologies. In short, to assume duty. After all, even if we are only responsible for a tiny proportion of global CO2 emissions, each saved gram is crucial. We are all aware of this responsibility and are more than happy to assume it. After all, we all have motor racing in our blood and, therefore, simply relish a challenge.
AMG – these three letters stand worldwide for supreme automotive performance, exclusivity, efficiency and highly dynamic driving pleasure.
Mercedes‑AMG GmbH has recorded numerous successes in motor sport and through the development of unique road-going vehicles, thereby repeatedly underlining its position as a highly successful sports car and performance brand – and today this is truer than ever. Today, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler AG, the Affalterbach-based company represents the sporting spearhead of the Group.
Affalterbach is home to the management, administration, sales, development and design teams as well as AMG hand-crafted engine building. This is where AMG V8 engines are produced. Other engines are produced in plants within the Daimler Group: Kölleda (four-cylinder in-line engines) and Mannheim (V12 engines). Each engine is hand-assembled by a single engine builder at these sites according to the "one man, one engine" philosophy and provided with a badge hand-signed by the relevant technician.
Mercedes-AMG is today responsible for the development not only of the new eight-cylinder family of the Mercedes-Benz brand, but also of the AMG V8 engines.
Today the management of Mercedes‑AMG GmbH comprises the members Tobias Moers (Chairman), Emmerich Schiller and Günter Ohler.
The history of Mercedes‑AMG is full of records – whether they be for motor racing, performance or sales figures. And every day we resolve to give our best. But a success story can only be written if you have a firm eye on the future. As a high-performance brand and part of a globally active group of companies, it is our duty to develop sustainable technologies. In short, to assume duty. After all, even if we are only responsible for a tiny proportion of global CO2 emissions, each saved gram is crucial. We are all aware of this responsibility and are more than happy to assume it.
After all, we all have motor racing in our blood and, therefore, simply relish a challenge.
Our pole positions.
The Management Team.
Chairman of the Management Board.

Thanks to his technical competence and passion for high-performance cars, over approximately the past 20 years Tobias Moers has made a significant contribution to the success of the AMG high-performance brand and also been instrumental in helping to shape its products. One of the highlights of his career at the company based in Affalterbach has been the SLS AMG super sports car launched in 2009 – the first complete vehicle to be fully developed in-house by Mercedes-AMG.
