An Ideal Site for Quality

AUDI AG can rely on Győr for a wide range of highly educated professionals. The company provides a attractive workplace for students finishing at the “Széchenyi István” University of Győr. In 1993, AUDI AG purchased industrial land and a part-finished 100,000 m² production hall from the company "Rába Magyar Vagon- és Gépgyár". The site area used until 1st May 2004 (the date that Hungary joined the EU) as a duty-free zone has now grown to over 1,000,000 m².

High-Tech Engines from Győr

The AUDI AG engine plant was opened in Hungary in October 1994. Through this new plant in Győr not only was international competitiveness achieved, but an important site with strategic significance was established in Hungary, which continues to grow in importance. Today, nearly all the engines fitted in Audi vehicles come from Győr.

Production started with the assembly of 1.8 litre 4-cylinder five valve engines, manufactured both in naturally-aspirated and turbo variants. Since 1998 six-cylinder engines are also manufactured in Győr, with cylinder capacities from 2.4 through 2.8 and 3.0 up to 3.2 litres.

At the end of 1997, production of 8-cylinder engines with 4.2 and 3.3 litres started. Győr is also the manufacturing site for 4-cylinder diesel engines with pump injector direct injection technology. In 2002, engine production was increased to include FSI direct injection petrol engines. In May 2004, the new production line for connecting rods for 4-cylinder diesel engines started to operate.

September 2005 saw the start of production of modern high-revving 4.2-litre 8-cylinder engines.

In April 2006 the product offer of Audi Hungaria again increased with the powerful 5.2 litre 10-cylinder petrol engine with FSI technology featuring a future-orientated, highly efficient but astonishingly simple valve control technology- the innovative Audi valvelift system.

In 1999 the 1,000,000th engine was produced in Győr. In June 2005, the 10,000,000th engine came off the production line – it was fitted to a specially-made Audi TT for police purposes.

In 2006 a total of 1,893,600 engines were produced for Audi vehicles and for the other brands in the Volkswagen Group. Audi Hungaria began with series production of the new four-cylinder common rail engines in October 2007. Common rail technology will broaden the Audi and Volkswagen offer of powerful, highly efficient and low emission TDI engines.

In total, 25 basic engines types are produced in Győr in around 450 variants of 4-, 6-, 8- and 10-cylinder engines. The aim of Audi Hungaria is to widen the product palette and increase the production of engine components in Győr.

Production Technology and Logistics in Győr

During production planning, the emphasis at AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. is on organizational structure based on process systems: processed components and parts leave the manufacturing lines exactly where they will be assembled into engines. As a result, distances between different assembly groups are short. Supply for the assembly groups and transport of assembled parts happens quickly and directly. Internal material flow is managed so that only parts needed for assembly work are kept in store ready for use.

Transportation of materials and finished products between Győr and Ingolstadt is done mainly by railway. Parts and components components are prepared in Ingolstadt and delivered via railway to Győr. Finished engines and vehicles are transported in the same manner back to Ingolstadt. The distance between Germany and Hungary is covered by 28 trains every week. This means an environmentally-friendly, cost and time effective form of transportation.

Car Manufacturing

Preparation work began in Győr in 1997 for assembling vehicles. Series production of Audi TT models started in April 1998. By the end of 2005, a total of 325,463 Audi TT Coupé and Roadster vehicles, and a total of 36,458 Audi A3 and S3 vehicles had rolled down the production lines.

In April 2006 and in November 2006 respectively, the first second-generation Audi TT Coupé and Audi TT Roadster rolled off the lines at Audi Hungaria.

Vehicles are produced in the framework of a cooperative manufacturing concept. They are built partly at the German production site of AUDI AG in Ingolstadt and partly at AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. in Győr. The vehicle manufacturing plant was built in a 35,000 m2 area of the production hall based on an investment of more than 35 million EUR.

Painted car bodies arrive in Győr after their journey from Ingolstadt. In the plant, Audi has created a new production concept based on systems of processes, featuring short material supply paths and fast, direct processes from the supply of the components to the delivery of the finished vehicles.

The finished car leaves the assembly line having completed 65 work steps and travelled 240 metres over 7.5 hours. Then the only thing to do is to turn the ignition key, and the new Audi TT Coupé and Roadster can make their first journey, which is to the test rack beside the production hall. Here the brakes, suspension and shock absorbers are checked. The vehicles are then leave Győr by train and are taken back to Ingolstadt.

Due to the great success of the ewn Audi A3 and the start of production of the new A4, the plants in Ingolstadt were reaching full capacity. So A3 assembly started in April 2001. By April 2003, a total of 36, 458 Audi A3 and S3 vehicles were made.

Production of the new Audi A3 Cabriolet started in November 2007 in Győr.

Tool Manufacturing Plant

After a series of site examinations concerning Middle and East Europe, it was decided to establish a new Audi tool manufacturing plant at Audi HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. in 2005.

With an investment of nearly 40 million EUR a production hall with 18,000 m2 was built. Plant tools required for the pressing plant and car body manufacturing are produced here. Technical highlights are a are the large press featuring a maximum of 25,000 kN (kilonewtons) of force and a maximum tool weight of 50 tonnes.

Capacity of the tool manufacturing plant is now 150,000 hours per year. In the last phase of the development in 2008, the capacity will reach 500,000 hours per year. Manufacturing of car body parts for one of the top models of the Audi Group – the Audi RS4 – started in the middle of 2005. From 2006, engines and car body parts for the Audi R8 have been produced in the tool manufacturing plant at Audi Hungaria.

In the tool manufacturing plant there are 260 employees working in 3 shifts, and this figure will be increased in the final development phase up to 320 workers.

Development and Production Planning

The Engine Development Centre was opened in June 2001. This project was realized on the enlarged plant area of Audi HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. and required 5,000 square metres of space.

The building complex comprises an engine test bench system and several workshops, as well as the engine production building. Construction of the engine development centre started in the second half of 1999, and was finished within round a year.

The heart of the complex is the engine control area, which is equipped with the most up-to-date testing and checking systems and technologies. Work places were created for the development engineers, as well as for those working in the fields of production planning and information technology. This investment exceeded the sum of 25 million EUR.

The Engine Development Centre gives support for the engine manufacturing of AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. through series production development activities. Work orders are given to the development engineers not only from the different engine manufacturing areas in Győr, but also from the development centres of AUDI AG. The steadily growing capacity of the plant and the complexity of the engine variants demanded the introduction of production planning.

Production planning comprises planning support for the existing engine manufacturing, as well as planning and installation of new production lines, manufacturing equipment and machines. In order to ensure that buildings are ready for production with innovative and competitive manufacturing concepts and processes, suitable cooperation is required among technical development, manufacturing and quality assurance departments. With the completion of the second building phase of the Engine Development Centre in November 2004, development capacity was doubled. Thereby a full competency was reached regarding engine manufacturing tasks.

Building work for the South Entry Hall for Goods and for the Audi Hungaria Forum were finished in 2003, when the widening of Hall G10 started. The AUDI Hungaria Forum is used as the location for various events and ceremonies by the company.

Employees in Győr

Employees in plant administration and production are organised into teams. As well as professional skill and competence, qualification, foreign language knowledge and professional experience, great emphasise is laid on ability for working in teams, and the social competence. This selection step is made in the „assessment” centre.

Wages are based – just like at the AUDI AG – on a uniform, performance-oriented system. In this system there is a base (fixed) wage and a variable component which depends on individual performance.

One of the most important elements is the joint agreement of targets by employees and managers, as well as the continuous control of their realization and execution. General targets cover quality, productivity, timely delivery costs. The company supports the personal and technical development of the workforce through a wide spectrum of programmes.

Environmental Protection

Environmental protection at Audi has the same priority as quality and productivity.

An Environment Management System based on “EMAS” standard has been implemented at the company since 1999, certified by an independent auditing institute. All of the processes used at the company are in accordance with the guidelines of the environment management system. In 2005, Audi Hungaria was awarded with the EMAS-ECO-Management prize for its environmentally-conscious activities.

As well as the development of the environmental consciousness of employees, the development of environmentally-friendly production strategies is also of highest importance. The company won the Öko-Profit prize from the European Union for “clean production” in both 2001 and 2004.
