Yesterday was made official this great news for the Spanish industry. The German Volkswagen will bring a second model to the production line of the factory navarra, Landaben. In this plant two different models never before had been performed in the same period of time. It currently produces the Volkswagen Polo
The model that will be added to the production of Navarre belongs precisely to the Polo range. It is a derived directly from this, B-segment SUV, will be the car’s smaller SUV type of brand. Sharing platform, it does not imply excessive spending by having to put up the production lines.
This situation will create a large number of jobs, although the figure is still unknown The start of production of the new vehicle is scheduled for 2018, although there is still not an exact date as to what month or approximately half of the year will start. The arrival of this second model to factory Lanbaden will generate a high number of jobs direct factory, guaranteeing the continuity of much of current workers.
In addition to the direct agreement contracts, we must take into account indirect jobs, especially in areas close to the ground, since the production of a vehicle generates external jobs by issues of logistics and supply of materials.
From the Navarra plant has been producing the Volkswagen Polo, having been assembling the last four generations of the model, have gotten for their lines more than seven million units.
