Between July and October 2018, Mr. Rebo lent his expertise as a freelance on-site manager at the Mercedes-Benz facility in Düsseldorf, Germany.

This assignment focused on the installation of a €150 million fleet of KUKA welding robots in the body shop, crucial to the production of Mercedes-Benz’s highly acclaimed Sprinter vans. Mr. Rebo’s responsibilities extended to leading a talented team of over 50 engineers and programmers who collectively undertook the task of installing the fully automated robotic systems for gluing, welding and hanging doors, hoods and fenders.

Working in a demanding environment where the equipment ran three shifts, seven days a week, 24 hours a day, Mr. Rebo’s leadership and organizational skills were put to the test. However, the team exceeded expectations by successfully completing the installation without any production downtime. This achievement was a testament to Mr. Rebo’s ability to efficiently manage and synchronize complex operations.

Following the installation, Mr. Rebo’s team diligently performed acceptance testing and then handed over the equipment to the Mercedes-Benz maintenance team, a smooth transition that underscored his team’s commitment to service excellence.

This fruitful partnership with Mercedes-Benz is a shining example of Mr. Rebo’s capabilities, his expertise in managing highly technical installations, and his unwavering commitment to quality and efficiency.
