“The team really has earned this accolade. It employs various initiatives and works at an exemplary pace to implement necessary changes for boosting productivity and enhancing quality. This is something we need more than ever to safeguard the future of this location,” explains Head of Production Andreas Tostmann. He is also calling for “Wolfsburg [to be] the flagship plant for global production for our brand.” Plant Manager Stefan Loth describes the award as an “honor and clear recognition of the work of our team.” The award confirms that the Wolfsburg plant is certainly on the right track with the changes it has made.
The main Volkswagen plant focuses on matters of productivity, quality and team performance through its PQT strategy. Its aim is to create an increasingly more efficient volume production to strengthen the location’s position. With around 400 workshops this year alone, employees and managers alike are improving processes within the production system while also reducing production costs per vehicle through consistently excellent quality standards.
