Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (Daimler Motor Company, DMG) was a German engine and later automobile manufacturer, in operation from 1890 until 1926. Founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, it was based first in Cannstatt (today Bad Cannstatt, a city district of Stuttgart). Daimler died in 1900, and the company moved in 1903 to Stuttgart-Untertürkheim after the original factory was destroyed by fire, and again to Berlin in 1922. Other factories were located in Marienfelde (near Berlin) and Sindelfingen (next to Stuttgart). The company started as a petrol engine producer, but after the success of a small number of race cars built on contract by Wilhelm Maybach for Emil Jellinek, it began to produce the Mercedes model of 1902, after which automobile production expanded to become DMG main product and it built several models. (Source: Wikipedia).
Daimler’s first experience of armoured vehicle manufacture came with the A7V which was manufactured at the Daimler works at Marienfelde. The prototype was ordered in January 1917, with a requirement of ten pre-production vehicles for trials to be ready for the following summer. Production was held up, however, by shortage of materials (priority being given to other war production), shortage of resources due to Germany’s economic state, and mechanical failings which showed up during trials with the prototype. The first German tank companies, Abteilungen 1and 2, were established on 29 September 1917 but the first production A7V was not delivered until the following month.
Daimler-Benz was founded in 1926. An Agreement of Mutual Interest had been signed in 1924 between Karl Benz’s company and DMG. The companies merged on 28 June 1926 becoming Daimler-Benz AG. (Source: Wikipedia).
Daimler-Benz was responsible for the superstructure design of the PzKpfw I in 1933 and later produced prototypes and production vehicles. It was prime contractor for the Kleine Panzerbefehlswagen on the PzKpfw I chassis and produced 190 examples between 1935 and 1938.
Daimler-Benz was the design parent for the Panzerkampfwagen III and produced the initial prototypes. It shared production with Alkett, FAMO, Henschel, MAN, MIAG, Wegmann and MNH.
