Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH. Tradition meets the Future.

It’s an important employer in the region and an innovation driver in the automobile manufacturing industry: Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH, which also includes the Gläserne Manufaktur. Learn more about its two other plants in Zwickau and Chemnitz.

Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH is comprised of three modern manufacturing sites where top Volkswagen models and innovative engines are produced: Fahrzeugwerk Zwickau, Motorenwerk Chemnitz and the Gläserne Manufaktur Dresden. Volkswagen Sachsen and its 10,000 employees make it one of the largest and most profitable employers in the German state of Saxony.

The first Volkswagen Polo rolled off the assembly line in Mosel (now Zwickau) on May 21, 1990. That event took place nearly 30 years ago and, as of 2018, more than 5.5 million Volkswagen vehicles have been produced on the Saxon assembly lines since then. More than 15.5 million engines have been produced in Chemnitz.

The conversion of the second assembly line in summer 2020 will transform the Zwickau plant into a site wholly dedicated to e-mobility. Up to 1,500 electric vehicles based on the ID. and the ID. Crozz will be built for Volkswagen, Seat and Audi daily.

The plant is organized into the areas of mechanical processing, engine and component group assembly and service. In mechanical processing, high-tech machining centers and nearly fully-automatic complex line management determine the production process. Testing and sorting processes with a direct closed loop to the individual machining centers are integrated into the systems.
