Chattanooga hosts VW officials

Chattanooga hosts VW officials

September 23rd, 2011 in Opinion Free Press

Chattanoogans have enthusiastically welcomed the billion-dollar Volkswagen manufacturing plant to our community.

And this week, Chattanooga is playing host to about 250 Volkswagen officials, other VW employees and their spouses. The visitors have come from around the world.

The VW representatives are in Chattanooga to map out strategy and to view the local plant's assembly lines, which already are turning out between 250 and 300 Passats a day!

"We like the city," said Martin Winterkorn, VW's chief executive.

That is evident from the company's huge local investment. And undoubtedly the feeling of admiration is mutual.

Chattanoogans are justifiably eager to assure great productivity and economic success for VW and for our people.
