The plant in Kölleda has produced four-cylinder petrol and four and six cylinder diesel engines since late 2003. It commenced building the four-cylinder 4A9 and three-cylinder 3A9 engines for Mitsubishi, Mercedes-Benz and Smart vehicles.

The Arnstadt plant produces crankcases for Mercedes-Benz engines using the Nanoslide process where cylinder liners are coated and finely honed.

The company was founded in 2001 as a joint venture between Mitsubishi and Daimler Chrysler. The Kölleda plant was built as part of this venture with at a cost of €244 million[1].
