Audi has secured important production capacities for its ongoing growth with the plant in Brussels. With the intention of further developing the Brussels plant into a key component of the Audi production network, Audi has optimized the plant’s processes in accordance with the Audi Production System (APS), with the major features of group work and continuous improvement. In order to improve the process chains, Audi has closely integrated the external suppliers and service providers into the production process. Short throughput times in production, low inventories and a high proportion of added value are the objectives which Audi Brussels focuses on.
In addition to a body shop, assembly line and paint shop, Audi Brussels has a modern pre-series center that links up the areas of production and technical development, thus safeguarding the high quality of the Audi A1*. Every hour, approximately 35 Audi A1 cars are produced at Audi Brussels – an optimal basis for the brand’s dynamic growth.
In the future, the Brussels plant will produce its own batteries for the production of the battery-electric SUV. The Belgian site will then be the key plant for electric mobility at the Audi Group.
