Flexibility, part of our DNA

As a Vehicle Contract Manufacturer, flexibility is an important part of our DNA. This is proven by our launch of five different models on the same production line, while at the same time ramping up from zero to over 200,000 vehicles in four years.

Due to our experience with many different logistic flows and a rather unique pearl chain procces, we organise an efficient and reliable inbound logistics flow. Our 'warehouse' on wheels, in combination with continuous monitoring systems, lead to an absolute minimum inventory stock.
