Prime Minister Stefan Mappus visited Porsche in Zuffenhausen

New head of the federal state underlines the importance of loyalty to a location

Stuttgart/Weissach. Baden-Wurttemberg’s new Prime Minister Stefan Mappus used his visit to the plant at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, for detailed discussions with CEO Michael Macht, the head of the Group works council Uwe Hück, and employees. After a tour through the production facilities at the traditional site in the district of Zuffenhausen, where the models 911 and Boxster are built, Mappus said, “Porsche is a symbol for outstanding and innovative products from Baden-Württemberg with a global reputation. I have come to Zuffenhausen seeking direct dialog with the company managers and to gain an impression myself of the company’s productivity on site. In particular, the forward-looking production systems and the highly qualified and motivated employees are impressive.”

The Chairman of the Board of Management at Porsche, Michael Macht, underlined the importance of Zuffenhausen: “Our sporty premium vehicles need their home base – and that’s something that our international customers expect, many of whom visit our plant. That is why we put our faith in state-of-the-art technologies, highly efficient production processes and invest in the location for the long term: After a new engine plant, we are currently building one of the most environmentally friendly and modern paint shops in the world. This is supplemented by a new museum, which has already attracted more than 600,000 international visitors to Stuttgart.”
