Jul 22, 2015 - 4:18 PM - by Audi Forum


The new Audi production site in Münchsmünster is approximately 30 kilometers (18.6 mi) east of the main production facility in Ingolstadt. Hot and cold formed pressed parts, high tech chassis components and lightweight aluminum structural components, among others, are being produced here for the new Audi Q7. By 2017, a total of 900 employees will be working at the site and shipping out 26 million parts worldwide annually. The production site in Münchsmünster, the high tech Audi Neuburg complex and the future innovation campus (abbreviated “INCampus”) are making the Audi Ingolstadt site a key force behind growth in Bavaria.

“The components that we are manufacturing in Münchsmünster are helping us to perfect our systematic lightweight construction,” explains Audi Production Board Member Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl.

Production at our Münchsmünster site is synonymous with ultramodern, cutting‑edge technology,” says Waltl. ... [Read More]
