Audi México was visited by three members of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. The reason for their visit to San José Chiapa was to meet the employees responsible for the smooth operation of the factory, which represents a valuable member of the Audi Group’s production network. Audi México is a benchmark in the implementation of the latest developments in resource efficiency and manufacturing processes. During the visit, the AUDI AG board members toured various areas of the plant, which is responsible for producing the Audi Q5 for the entire global market except China. The AUDI AG board members took advantage of their trip to meet with Audi employees in Mexico, as well as to take an extensive tour of the various buildings that focus on Audi quality and culture, thanks to ultramodern equipment and highly efficient logistics that make possible the production of 150,000 Audi Q5s on average per year. The tour began in the press shop, one of the most modern in America. There, they saw the production of the parts from which the body of the car is later assembled in the body shop, which was the top management’s second stop. This hall is a benchmark in terms of robotics, with more than 800 robots ensuring the precision assembly of the Audi Q5 alongside employees.
