Transparent Factory in Dresden switches to double shift production
Production record: ca. 7,500 Phaeton manufactured in 2010


Dresden, 9 February 2011 – Due to increasing demand, Transparent Factory in Dresden will begin double shift production of the Phaeton with immediate effect. Some 7,500 Phaeton were manufactured in the past year alone – more vehicles than at any other time in the history of the factory. Plant manager Jürgen Borrmann anticipates a further increase for 2011.


“The entire team delivered an outstanding result in 2010″, says Borrmann in praise of his staff. “The transition to the double shift production system is an important move towards the future for the Transparent Factory.”


Borrmann is optimistic: “I am convinced that the team will again deliver top results in 2011.”


Production now begins daily at 6 am and ends at 11 pm. On Fridays, the second shift ends at 9 pm. At present, 48 Phaetons are manually assembled every work day. More than 50,000 Phaeton have been built since the factory opened on 11 December 2001. Transparent Factory in Dresden currently has a workforce of around 500 employees. Guided tours are available seven days a week between 9 am and 6 pm.
