The Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth is celebrating a special anniversary, as the Unimog has been produced here for 20 years, according to Daimler Truck's news release. 

After the vehicle had been manufactured at the sister plant in Gaggenau for years, production of the universal engine-powered machine moved from Gaggenau to the Wörth plant in 2002. The Unimog has since been produced in the largest plant for Mercedes-Benz trucks with a high proportion of manual assembly, according to Daimler Truck.

To this day, the Unimog is still associated with the Gaggenau plant, where it was produced for over 50 years. The Unimog-specific portal axles, transmissions, and other components are still manufactured in Gaggenau. Today, the Unimog Museum is also located near the former production site. Since the start of production in 1951, over 370,000 Unimogs have rolled off the production lines at the Gaggenau and Wörth plants.
