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. 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 Pre-Series Center. This networks Production and Technical Development, ensuring the high quality of the Audi A1. The Audi Brussels plant produces roughly 35 Audi A1 models each hour.
In the future, the Brussels plant will manufacture its own batteries for the production of the battery-electric SUV. The Belgian site will thus become the key plant for electric mobility within the Audi Group.
