AMA Group, a nationwide industry leader committed to providing technologically sophisticated and solution-oriented engineering design and implementation, partnered with Hendy Associates architecture studio, on the new Mercedes-Benz Classic Center (MBCC) which opened late last year at the former McDonnell-Douglas aerospace manufacturing facility in Long Beach, California – making it one of only two MBCC locations in the world. The grand opening featured numerous classic cars – catering to the car enthusiast’s dream.
AMA Chief Executive Officer Arthur Metzler added, “The 40,000 SF facility is an anomaly for a multitude of reasons – the biggest one being that it is multi-purpose. The MBCC not only showcases new cars before being sold, it also serves as a maintenance center.”
This MBCC marks AMA Group’s first design collaboration with Hendy Associates and third Mercedes-Benz showroom, joining the Long Beach (CA) and New York City showrooms. The Classic Center features the usual restoration and maintenance facilities—paint booths, lifts for maintenance, upholstery areas for leather and trim work.
The new Center offers a beautiful and holistic brand experience for car owners and enthusiasts. A hidden section of the new space serves as a Vehicle Preparation Center for tens of thousands of inbound SUVs, sedans and coupes before they’re distributed to dealers.
