    Anniversary at Volkswagen Slovakia: 25 years of multi-brand manufacturing expertise

    Over the past 25 years, Volkswagen Slovakia has become a mainstay of the Volkswagen brand production system. On the occasion of the anniversary of the company's foundation, the Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, Thomas Ulbrich, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen brand responsible for Production and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Volkswagen Slovakia, and Ralf Sacht, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Slovakia, praised the outstanding achievements of Slovakia's largest automaker at an anniversary celebration. "The Volkswagen brand needs shining examples like Volkswagen Slovakia who show how we want to produce and will produce in the future – efficiently, free from defects, flexibly and in a customer oriented way. It is worth remembering that conditions here in Bratislava are especially complex; production of six Group brands at one location is unique. This bears witness to our extremely high level of technical production expertise," Production Board Member Ulbrich emphasized in a speech to the employees in Bratislava.
