Audi San Jose Chiapa, Mexico plant


Η Audi έδωσε την ευκαιρία στον πρόεδρο του Μεξικό, Enrique Peña Nieto, να πάρει μια πρώτη γεύση ενός πρωτοτύπου του νέου Q5, κατά τη διάρκεια επίσκεψης του τελευταίο στο εργοστάσιο της εταιρίας.

Η γραμμή παραγωγής είναι στο στάδιο της ολοκλήρωσης, και η μονάδα θα ξεκινήσει την παραγωγή του Q5 το επόμενο έτος, με τον Peña να δηλώνει ότι η πόσο καλά η παραγωγή του πρώτου premium μοντέλο στο Μεξικού, θα αντανακλάσει την πρόοδο της χώρας του ως κατασκευαστική δύναμη.

Εκτός από την επίσκεψη στο χώρο του εργοστασίου, ο Peña εγκαινίασε και έναν αυτοκινητόδρομο 21 χιλιομέτρων, που συνδέει το εργοστάσιο με μία από τις κύριες αρτηρίες μεταφοράς του Μεξικού. Η Audi λέει ότι η διαδρομή συνδέει τη Πόλη του Μεξικού με τη Veracruz, η οποία είναι μια πόλη στον Κόλπο του Μεξικού και ένα πολύ σημαντικό λιμάνι για τις μεταφορές προς την Ευρώπη.

AUDI MEXICO PLANT DRAWS TOP-LEVEL ATTENTION AS OPENING NEARS

  • Audi of Mexico hosted Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto and many other dignitaries for the inauguration of $100 million in infrastructure projects
  • The governor of Puebla and several top members of Peña’s cabinet joined Audi of Mexico CEO Alfons Dintner at the event
  • Peña got a top-secret peek at the final prototype of the new Q5.

As it nears completion and gets closer to turning out new Audi Q5 crossovers next year, the Audi plant under construction in San José Chiapa, Mexico, is becoming the focus of more attention from around the continent and across the world.

On the heels of a major event that brought CEOs and other representatives of 80 suppliers to the plant in August, Audi of Mexico hosted Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto and many other dignitaries for the inauguration of $100 million in infrastructure projects that will help Audi and the state of Puebla prosper together.

Peña formally opened 21 kilometers of highway that connects the Audi site and related facilities with one of the nation’s main transport arteries. The route connects to Mexico City to the northwest and to Veracruz to the east on the Gulf of Mexico – a major port for shipments to Europe.

Peña noted how well the production of Mexico’s first premium vehicle will reflect on the nation’s progress as a manufacturing power.

The governor of Puebla, Rafael Moreno Valle, and several top members of Peña’s cabinet joined Audi of Mexico CEO Alfons Dintner at the event along with about 3,000 people, including about 1,000 from Audi and about 2,000 members of the public. Peña’s visit ended with a tour of the training center at the Audi facility – and a top-secret peek at the final prototype of the new Q5.

In August, Dintner hosted a Suppliers Day to share the Audi vision with some of the representatives of the companies that will do a projected $17 billion worth of business in components and services over the life cycle of the Q5. About two-thirds of those outlays will go to companies headquartered in North America and about 20 percent to European companies.
