Rehau builds new plant in Hungary

For Audi, Rehau has been producing bumpers for various models at Györ since 2005. The move to an own production facility is due to orders for bumper systems for the new TT and Q7, for which extra capacity is required. In the future, the intention is to injection-mould and paint the front and rear bumper systems for both models prior to local final assembly in Györ. Up to now, the exterior body parts for these models were manu­factured at the Viechtach plant in Germany. Thanks to new model start-ups, capacity at this plant is fully utilised, which is why those in charge sought an alternative.
The Bavarian system supplier is investing a total of approximately EUR 60 million. Production start is scheduled for 2013; a workforce of 150 will work on a three-shift system at the production facility. These will be backed up by around 50 administrative staff.
