The globally oriented Group unites twelve brands from seven European countries under one roof: Volkswagen, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ducati, Scania, SEAT, Škoda, MAN and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
Production takes place in more than 60 manufacturing plants around the globe. The Group's vehicles are offered in over 150 countries.
In addition to the automotive business, the company offers a broad range of services along the entire value chain through its subsidiary Volkswagen Financial Services.
The heart of the company beats in Wolfsburg. With the world's largest contiguous automotive plant, the city is both a production location and home to the Group's headquarters with all corporate divisions, including research and development. The company's worldwide activities and administration are organized from Wolfsburg.
The history of the plant is inextricably linked with the city of Wolfsburg, as both were founded in the same year. Even today, Volkswagen and the city are linked by close cooperation, which led to the founding of a joint company, Wolfsburg AG, in 1999. Several thousand jobs have been created and secured through the promotion of company start-ups and relocations, the development and implementation of leisure attractions, mobility projects and concepts for location development, as well as through personnel services.
For Volkswagen, social commitment is an important component of corporate action as a "good neighbor". The Volkswagen Group supports social development, culture and education, participates in regional structural development and research, and initiates health promotion, sports and nature conservation projects. This maxim applies not only to Germany, but to its locations worldwide. Volkswagen is committed to improving the living conditions of local people beyond the minimum legal requirements. This is part of the company's culture and tradition and has played a major role in attracting qualified and motivated employees to Volkswagen.
On the basis of strong brands and companies, the Volkswagen Group is continuing its automotive success story with fascinating products. Its claim is and remains to act out of responsibility for customers, shareholders, employees and society.
