Thomas, what challenges does the Hanover plant face over the coming months?
Thomas: “Well first of all, we have a large number of technical challenges to contend with – including electrification. And then, of course, there are several upcoming launches that we need to start preparing for properly. Added to that, we have a whole host of conversions and projects to manage, such as the new top coat line 1 and the automated body shop finishing process. We have also been looking at making our assembly processes fit for the future, and Udo has already made a start in this regard. The other huge task we face is ensuring our employees all have the relevant qualifications.”
