The new plant fire department in Wolfsburg on Strasse 37 has been officially opened. Chief Human Resources Officer Gunnar Kilian and Works Council Chairman Bernd Osterloh, who arrived at the event in the “Volkswagen Move by Service Factory Shuttle,” inaugurated the new station. The move from the old fire station near the East Gate took place shortly before Christmas.
Kilian: “I’m impressed by the new fire station. The short construction time and the moderate cost development were in part made possible by the close cooperation between the planners and the future users of the building. Our colleagues developed the specifications themselves, in order to incorporate their individuals needs and work requirements in the design.”
Osterloh took the opportunity to praise the fire department for its work: “A site with 70,000 employees is full of hazards and risks. That’s why it’s reassuring to know that there’s a troupe of well-qualified and equipped fire fighters and paramedics at our service in an emergency. Because of you, everyone at the site is kept safe, and feels safe. We would like to thank you for that today.”
