Cromodora will build a new plant exclusively for Audi and the Volkswagen Group for cost-effective and resource-efficient manufacturing of wheels.

18 Jan 2020 | International News : Germany

Audi and the wheel maker Cromodora have made an agreement securing the sustainable and cost-effective maufacturing of wheels.

Audi and Cromodora have also agreed on transparent, optimised cost structures, with risks being shared by the two partners
The agreement is a long-term cooperative undertaking that will last for up to ten years and see Cromodora building a new wheel plant in Eastern Europe exclusively for Audi and the Volkswagen Group. Production, scheduled to begin in 2023, will be cost-effective, yet sustainable and resource-efficient. Audi guarantees to Cromodora the sourcing of its wheels for a specified period of time.

The new plant gives both partners the opportunity to create sustainable processes from the very beginning.

Since the end of 2018, Audi's carbon program has pursued the goal of reducing emissions in the supply chain in collaboration with its partners. In CO2 workshops, Cromodora and Audi are already exchanging ideas about measures to achieve sustainability. The aim is to use green power, secondary materials, minimised consumption of fresh water, and certification by the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative. Internal loop systems, too, are to be established, for example, in the re-use of waste material in the plant's own production.
