    Audi México se centra en los proveedores locales

    Audi México crea puestos de trabajo en la región TLCAN gracias a su ambiciosa estrategia de expansión. A medio plazo, un porcentaje superior al 65% de las piezas suministradas por los proveedores para el Audi Q5* deberán proceder de América del Norte y a largo plazo, incluso hasta el 90%. De este modo, en los próximos diez años se podrán crear más de 20,000 puestos de trabajo, de los cuales, alrededor de 1,000 se concentrarán en un parque de proveedores ubicado al sur de la planta de Audi en San José Chiapa. Con motivo del comienzo de las obras se reunieron hoy el Responsable de Compras en el Consejo de Dirección, el Dr. Bernd Martens y el Gobernador de Puebla, Rafael Moreno Valle Rosas. Está previsto que el parque de proveedores JIS (just in sequence) se ponga en marcha, en una primera fase, a finales de 2014.

    AUDI AG: Laying of foundation stone for new plant in San José Chiapa, Mexico

Investment of more than € 900 million here in the next two years will result not only in a body shop, paint shop and assembly line, but also in a new press shop.
