At Mercedes-Benz we are proud to touch the lives of so many families in Alabama. Take the Bester family. Bayaka Bester joined MBUSI in 1997, working first in the Paint Shop, then Body Shop, and now Engineering. Over the years he has traveled the globe with MBUSI, but Alabama was always home. Three years ago, that phrase took on new meaning when Bayaka was joined at MBUSI by his son, Bayaka Jr., a recent graduate of our Maintenance Apprenticeship program. Today, both are Full-Time Team Members, continuing the family tradition. Like father, like son.
