The Mercedes-Benz factory in Kecskemét can now be clearly noticed from afar thanks to the star representing the brand. The symbolic star, which makes all the world-famous brand’s headquarters and factories unmistakably recognized all over the world, was placed and put in operation on the tallest building of the plant. The star installed on the tallest building has a diameter of 6 meters and its total height including the bottom holding frame structure is 10 meter. It weighs 2,400 kg, rests on a rolling bearing that rotates at the speed of 1.8 turns per minute. Its bright polished pitted precious metal surface and the white plexiglass underneath has a chrome-effect in the daylight and thanks to LED lighting at night it appears glowing in white light.
