Today, the expansion project of Audi Hungaria’s tool shop was officially completed. Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary, Julia Gross, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Hungary, Dr. Csaba András Dézsi, Mayor of Győr, Alfons Dintner, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi Hungaria, Zoltán Les, Board Member in charge of vehicle manufacturing at Audi Hungaria, Jörg Spindler, Head of Manufacturing Engineering/Manufacturing Technology at AUDI AG, Thomas Heusser, Head of Audi Hungaria’s tool shop, György Nagy, Chairman of the Works Council of Audi Hungaria, Sándor Németh, Chairman of the Independent Trade Union of Audi Hungaria and Tünde Endi Angyalné, Head of Logistics Business Unit Tooling, jointly put into operation the new robot cells that will produce body parts for the exclusive Volkswagen and Audi Group models.

“Our investment in the expansion of the tool shop testifies to our commitment to our production site in Győr. We have invested a double-digit euro million amount in this project, which we have successfully carried out over the past two years,” said Gerd Walker, Board Member for Production and Logistics of AUDI AG and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Audi Hungaria.

“As part of our Next Level strategy, our company aims to take its activities in all areas to a new level. In addition to our core business of engine and vehicle manufacturing, we are also continuing to develop Audi Hungaria as a competence center providing world-class services, making a major contribution to the success of our Group. Our tool shop creates significant added value for our customers worldwide thanks to its unique products and its development and design services,” said Alfons Dintner, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi Hungaria.

Since its establishment in 2005, the tool shop of Audi Hungaria has been continuously expanding. With its three business lines, toolmaking, appliance and equipment manufacturing and exclusive series production, it currently employs around 700 people and is one of the largest of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe. Over the years, our colleagues have acquired a broad range of engineering and design competences, which has enabled the tool shop to offer a product and service portfolio that includes manufacturing simulation, design, design and manufacture of production equipment, as well as exclusive series production of body parts. Following the expansion, the 58,300-square-meter hall now features state-of-the-art technology, including a highly flexible press line, laser cutting equipment and flexible robot cells.

“The current expansion is a milestone in the history of our tool shop, as it has increased the area of our production and logistics hall by 6,300 square meters, thus creating the conditions for further increasing our exclusive series production capacity. Thanks to the newly installed production equipment and robots, our employees will be able to contribute to the production of even more Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley models, which we are all very proud of,” said Zoltán Les, Board Member in charge of vehicle manufacturing at Audi Hungaria.

In exclusive series production, aluminum is the main material used for highly complex body parts such as tailgates, bonnets, doors, fenders, roof and side panels. The experience and expertise gained over many years in exclusive series production in Győr benefit primarily the premium brands of the brand group: Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley.
