Volkswagen Mexico just opened a third shift for labor at their Puebla plant, hiring 500 new workers and raising daily production to 2,100 units with models Golf and Golf Variant included.
The Group Volkswagen Mexico, made up by the brands VW, Audi, Porsche and SEAT, including commercial vehicles, as well as the luxury brand Bentley and the MAN truck line, successfully increased in one year its market participation by 3.1%, peaking at 16.7% from January through September.
Volkswagen Puebla produces the models Jetta, Golf and Beetle, and according to analysts, the company is operating at full capacity, thus requiring new investment for expansion.
457,000 units were manufactured in this complex during 2015, with 80% shipped out as exports and 20% for domestic consumption.
