About Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East (MBCME)
Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East (MBCME), formerly known as Daimler Middle East & Levant (DMEL), is part of the Overseas Region of Daimler located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates as the Regional Office for all Mercedes-Benz Cars related Sales & After Sales activities for the Middle Eastern markets (GCC, Levant & Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan & Yemen).
The purpose of our Regional Office is to be closer to the customer, to enhance market sensitivity and to increase the added value effectively within short time. The Sales, After Sales and Replacement Parts activities for each market are organized via a network of exclusive general distributors.
The Office was set-up and became operational in November 1998 as DaimlerChrysler Middle East, when Daimler-Benz and Chrysler International joined forces and merged. The new office (Regional Office Middle East) in the Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai was officially opened on 7th April 2001. Following the demerger of Chrysler Group in March 2008, DaimlerChrysler Middle East became Daimler Middle East & Levant.
At the end of 2014, the decision was made to align the Sales structures of the Commercial Vehicles and Passenger Car business even more closely with the relevant target groups. As a result, Daimler Middle East & Levant was split in two separate entities in July 2015 - with one remaining ‘Daimler Middle East & Levant’ and a newly founded Regional Centre dedicated to the Commercial Vehicle side of the business ‘Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA’.
After the carve out of the CV business, ‘Daimler Middle East & Levant FZE’ has been fully dedicated to the Mercedes-Benz passenger car business. Therefore it was necessary to change the company name to ‘Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East FZE’.

- President & CEO’s Office
