The expansion of Volkswagen plant in Poznan has taken over two years and now the preparations for full production of the new Caddy are nearly finished. Changes made during the remodelling included the construction of a logistics hall, expansion of the body shop and reconfiguration of the factory site. Volkswagen has concluded around 90 per cent of the capital investment for preparing the plant for production of the latest vehicle models, in particular the new Caddy. The first few vehicles for testing the production processes are currently running through the new facilities. Volkswagen is planning to start full production in September and then to gradually ramp up the volume and ultimately reach full capacity in 2021.”

The first stage of the expansion process was the integration of two parts of the plant site, which had previously been separated by a minor public road. Thanks to a proactive dialogue with the local community it was possible in January 2019 to incorporate Smoldzinowska Road into the factory lands and thus to join together both parts of the plant on one site.

The next step was the construction of the new logistics hall. It provides warehouse space of 46,000 square eters for components for production of the Caddy and T6.1: engines, bumpers, side windows, door trim panels, bulkheads and fuel tanks. By virtue of the hall being right next to the production facility up to 260 lorry trips per day between Poznan and the site in Swarzedz will in future be saved.
