Naturally there’s a sense of uneasiness to open up in cooperation between the American company and the German company after being enemies in World War II and being in a complicated relationship during the Cold War. Daimler chairman Jurgen Schrempp didn’t improve the situation of the merger by hiding objectives from German hierarchical and order structure to change senior management and production practices.
