The Mercedes-Benz plant in East London is part of the global production network for the C-Class, with its lead plant in Bremen. The network also includes the Mercedes-Benz plant in Tuscaloosa (USA) and the joint venture plant BBAC in Peking (China).

The plant on the eastern cape of South Africa produces the C-Class Saloon for export to left and right-hand drive markets. Since the production start of the current C-Class in May 2014, this is already the fourth vehicle generation of the highest-volume Mercedes-Benz model series.

It was in 1958 that Car Distributors Assembly Ltd. started to produce Mercedes-Benz vehicles on a contractor basis. In 1984, the then Daimler-Benz AG acquired 50.1 percent of United Cars and Diesel Distributors UCDD. Since then the company has been registered as Mercedes-Benz of South Africa (MBSA).

In 2018, Mercedes-Benz Cars announced an investment of 600 million euros in expansion of the plant to make it fit for the future.
