Volkswagen starts a third shift at Pune plant for Ameo

Volkswagen India has started a third production shift at its Pune Plant in Chakan. The company added this shift to start manufacturing cars round the clock and mainly for manufacturing the upcoming Ameo compact sedan.

The company has hired 800 new employees for the new shift and plan to add more at a later stage. The people are being hired at different levels with different skill sets.

Andreas Lauermann, President and Managing Director, Volkswagen India Private Limited, said, “In 2016, we are expecting growth in our domestic as well as export volumes. With the new Ameo, a car that has been specially developed for India, we are expecting a higher demand from the domestic Indian market while we look at supplying more cars to our export markets too. In all, we expect to increase our production by around 15 per cent this year as compared to the last one.”

The Volkswagen Pune Plant began in March 2009 and currently produces the Polo, Vento and Skoda's Rapid. Apart from this, the manufacturer also assembles the 1.5-litre TDI engine at this facility. The state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will now also produce the Ameo compact sedan, which is expected to be launched soon in India.
