February 16, 2018
On December 12th, 2017, VOSS Automotive Ltda. inaugurated its new plant in Diadema, Sao Paulo. The event was attended by the main customers, the Board of Directors of the VOSS group, local authorities and major suppliers.
With an increase of 5.390 m², VOSS Brazil now has a total manufacturing area of 9.120 m², where 2.350 m² are available to meet future growth. Additionally, the new facilities allow a better flow of materials between the halls, as well as the installation of new equipment and processes.
The location of the new plant was strategically defined, since it allowed interconnecting the two factories of VOSS Automotive Brazil, optimizing logistics and improving the communication between the productive processes and the staff.
The new installations follow the VOSS standard of Visual Management, organized by cells which were specially designed for Lean Manufacturing and work safety.
The ceremony started with the speeches of the VOSS management, followed by the unveiling of the inauguration plate and the ribbon cutting. The event ended with a great cocktail to the sound of live Brazilian popular music.
The inauguration of a new plant, especially under a crisis scenario in the Brazilian market, shows that the VOSS group is strong and invests towards the future.
Customers, without exception, praised and were surprised with the size of the new plant and the organization of the manufacturing facilities.
