Rolls-Royce names Frank Ludwig as Director of Manufacturing

Article by Anita Panait, on June 6, 2013

Frank Ludwig has joined Rolls-Royce Motor Cars as Director of Manufacturing, replacing Jörg Bause who will be taking up a senior position at BMW South Africa (Pty) Ltd. Ludwig was previously Director, Painted Body for BMW in Leipzig, Germany.  He joined BMW in 2002 as General Manager, Manufacturing Body-in-White, at MINI in Oxford.

He was employed at a small premium car company in Germany before joining BMW. Rolls-Royce chief executive Torsten Müller-Ötvös, welcomed Ludwig to the carmaker and to his new role that involves leading its manufacturing team at Goodwood.

Müller-Ötvös remarked that with Ludwig’s extensive experience, he is confident that he is “ideally suited to further develop on the impressive results” achieved by Bause in the past three years.

Ludwig’s entry into Rolls-Royce was a very good timing as the carmaker is currently in the pre-production phase of the new Wraith model that was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Rolls-Royce will start delivering the first Wraiths to customers in the last quarter of 2013.
