AG's controversial chief of purchasing and production, J. Ignacio Lopez de Arriortua, finally gets to put his stamp on an all-new assembly plant. VW Brazil will build a revolutionary new plant to build buses and trucks in Brazil. The facility will have a central corridor with eight lateral sheds, four to a side. Each of the sheds will essentially belong to a Tier 1 supplier. The plant will only have eight Tier 1 suppliers. The people in the sheds will work for the suppliers, putting together components into subassemblies.
