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). Major features of the APS are group work and continuous improvement processes. 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 on which Audi Brussels focuses.
In addition to a body shop, assembly shop and paint shop, Audi Brussels also has a modern Analysis and Pre-Series Center. It connects Production and Technical Development to ensure the high quality of the Audi A1*. The Audi Brussels plant produces around 35 Audi A1* models per hour. The Brussels site also has its own battery manufacturing facility to support production of the battery-electric SUV. This makes it the key plant for electric mobility within the Audi Group.
