VW is seeking volunteers to man summer production of Golf

Article by Anita Panait, on June 25, 2013

Volkswagen is seeking for volunteers among its workers at its Wolfsburg site to build the Golf during a three-week holiday set in July 2013. According to a spokesman for the German carmaker, due to the high demand for the model, Volkswagen is considering whether to continue production in parts of the Wolfsburg site during the summer holidays.

German daily Braunschweiger Zeitung reported Monday that VW was looking for enough workers to form one or two shifts daily, each producing up to 300 cars to keep up with customer orders.

Braunschweiger Zeitung noted that since most workers at the Wolfsburg site had already planned holidays during the three-week production break set between July 15 and August 2, there are yet not enough personnel to handle the additional shifts.

The addition production shift could mean the current situation in the European volume market is slowly making an improvement. VW's fellow German carmaker Mercedes-Benz is also planning for a summer production.
