The Volkswagen Pune Plant

The Volkswagen plant in Chakan occupies a total area of over 2.3 million square metres (575 acres), with buildings covering about 1,15,000 square metres.

A workforce of over 3,500 people was engaged in building it during its peak construction stages. The plant was built in a record time of 17 months, with an investment commitment of INR 3,800 Crores (580 million Euros) by Volkswagen India Private Limited. It is the largest investment by a German company to date in the growing Indian market.

Volkswagen Production

The plant has a production capacity of 130,000 vehicles a year, which in capacity was maximised in 2011. The construction of the plant commenced in 2007.

The Honourable Governor of Maharashtra, His Excellency Shri. S. C. Jamir and Prof. Dr. Jochem Heizmann, officially inaugurated the new plant on March 31, 2009, in the presence of nearly 500 international guests.

The Pune plant is one of the most modern in the Volkswagen Group. It has a high level of vertical integration and a large share of local suppliers. The facility is the only production plant operated by a German automaker in India that covers the entire production process, from press shop through body shop and paint shop to final assembly.

A brief journey through a long history

When in 1937 the company known as "Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH" was founded, no one could have guessed that it would one day be Europe's largest carmaker. The history of the company - with all its trials and tribulations - is first and foremost a story of impressive success.

1937-1945

On May 28th, 1937 the "Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH" company is founded, and on September 16th, 1938 it is renamed "Volkswagenwerk GmbH". In early 1938, in what is today Wolfsburg, work begins on construction of the Volkswagenwerk plant which is to house production of the new vehicle designed by Ferdinand Porsche.
