In 2021 the world’s largest engine manufacturing plant kept on rolling. We have produced the 40 millionth engine in Győr. The proportion of electric motors has been constantly increasing in our production, the 250.000th electric axle drive unit has already rolled off the lines. Preperation for further production of e-motors has also begun on a site of 15.000 square meters. In our vehicle plant the 250.000th Audi Q3 model was produced, and its plug-in-hibrid derivate had been successfully launched onto the world market. Expansion of our Tool Factory had started, where even more car body parts will be built for exclusive models of the Volkswagen Group. The corona virus pandemic has stayed with us in 2021 as well. In order to counter its spread, safety measures have been introduced, such as setting up a vaccination site at Audi Hungaria, and donating 50 million forints to the local hospital for virus protection. We are proud to have been awarded, yet again, the Employer Branding Award for Hungary’s most attractive automotive employer. Audi Hungaria Technical Development celebrated its 20th birthday in 2021. In the upcoming years the Engine Development Department will keep on expanding in the area of electromobility, since here in Győr, we not only produce the engines of the future, but also play an increasing role in their development. Two new strength test stands have been added to our Vehicle Development Center which are unique in the Volkswagen Group. Owing to the flexibility of our employees we could give the right answers to the global semiconductor shortage. Our logistic processes have become more efficient by introducing the latest automated guided systems. Our competence-based services portfolio for Volkswagen Group sites has been further strengthened in the fields of procurement, IT and technical development. We are very proud to continue the cooperation as main sponsor with the Ballet Company of Győr, and Győri Audi ETO Handball Club. Our employees have been engaged in various volunteer projects in 2021 too. We only have one Planet Earth, we took care of it again, in 2021. The Aluminium Closed Loop project was launched to enable aluminium to be recycled, and we also set up a litter trap for plastic on the river Danube. We have managed our company’s activities based on sustainability, further strengthening our position within the Volkswagen and Audi Group. We are ensuring our future with our Next Level strategy, continuing on the path of electromobility and digitalisation, from Győr to the world!
2020 was a year of challenges for all of us. We, however, once again gave evidence of our capacity and capability, and continued to write the Company's book of success thanks to our committed staff. At the beginning of the year, following successful wage negotiations, we signed a 3-year wage agreement, meaning the human resource background of premium production continues to be ensured. Casting a looming shadow over 2020, the coronavirus pandemic reached our Company as well, but we took up the fight, implemented new measures and took care of each other. As a responsible company, we donated one hundred million forints to the region's fight against the virus, to contribute to the common battle we are waging. In Dr. Patrick Heinecke, our Company welcomed a new CFO. We celebrated numerous awards and jubilees in 2020. At the very start of the year, our Audi Q3 Sportback model won the “Best Cars” award, and as a source of joy and pride, Győr's Richárd Gyurenka was included among VW Group's best vocational students, while our Company was named Hungary's most attractive workplace. Our Experimental Motor Manufacturing Centre celebrated its 10th anniversary, just as the Audi Hungaria General Educational Centre has also been caring for the education of future generations for a decade. Our production also celebrated milestones, having manufactured our 38 millionth engine and with our 1.5 millionth car rolling off the production line. We made several historic announcements in the course of the year, we commenced production of an even more powerful E-engine, namely the E-tron performance as well as the manufacturing of Audi Hungaria's first plug-in-hybrid model, while our 15-year-old Tool Plant has launched the production of E-tron GT body parts. Having become carbon-neutral in 2020, we are well on the path to sustainability. Delivering Europe's largest rooftop solar park – hand in hand with E.ON Hungária – contributed greatly to this achievement. The significance of electromobility at the Company is unquestionable, and we have expanded our vehicle development unit with E-engine testing equipment. During this year filled with difficulty, our staff and associates again proved their humanity and the power of unity and cooperation, and supported multiple causes with donations. 2020, you were still a memorable and beautiful year. Thank you to all staff and employees, we are proud of everything you have achieved. To be continued next year.
