Ingolstadt, Neckarsulm – AUDI AG has made a dynamic start to the new year: Strong demand for example for the Audi models A3, Q5 and A6, A7 and R8 has resulted in high levels of capacity utilization at the plants in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm. In February alone, the automobile manufacturer has so far arranged ten special shifts in Ingolstadt and three in Neckarsulm. Another eight additional shifts are planned in Ingolstadt and two more in Neckarsulm this month.
Due to strong demand for the model series produced in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm, Audi arranged for special shifts to be worked right at the beginning of the year. In January, there were nine special shifts at the plant in Ingolstadt and one additional shift in Neckarsulm.
Board of Management Member for Production Dr. Frank Dreves: “Our Audi models are very popular all over the world; our order books are full. This makes us confident that we will grow again this year as well. For the coming months, we anticipate ongoing good utilization of capacity and additional shifts at our two domestic plants in Germany.”
“The plants in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm are important pillars of our growth strategy,” stated Board of Management Member for Human Resources Thomas Sigi. “The high level of capacity utilization secures employment over the long term. In this way, we offer our employees not only an attractive working environment, but also good prospects and security – at present with an employment guarantee until the end of 2018.”
