At Oakdale Executive we admire Mercedes contribution to the automotive industry. We wanted to therefore share some of this admiration with you so you can understand and appreciate why we chose Mercedes for our fleet.

History of Mercedes-Benz:
Mercedes-Benz is a German automotive manufacture. Karl Benz created the first petrol powered car, the Benz Patent Motorwagon which was financed by Bertha Benz, and its patent was secured in January 1886. This lead to the first Mercedes automobile to be marketed in 1901 by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellscraft and by 1926 the Mercedes-Benz brand name was produced. The brand symbol (a three-pointed star in a laurel wreath) stands for a number of values within Mercedes, these include innovation, performance, quality and awareness of tradition.

Mercedes-Benz has always been an innovative company, the company continually pushes the envelope of technology. Below is a small snapshot of what Mercedes-Benz has achieved:
