WOLFSBURG, GERMANY (WRCB) - Construction at the Volkswagen site in Chattanooga could begin in two weeks. Frank Fischer, who's in charge of the VW project, tells Eyewitness News anchor Greg Glover that VW officials are in Chattanooga right now finalizing contracts. Fischer says those contracts could be signed within two weeks. That paves the way for construction to begin.
On Wednesday, Eyewitness News takes you inside the Wolfsburg factory and shows you workers making VW's to give you a taste of what Chattanoogans and its workforce will be looking for at Enterprise South.
More than 2,000 tons of steel are transformed to 3,000 cars every day. And although the Wolfsburg plant dwarfs the size of the plant coming to Chattanooga, Chattanoogans can still get a feel of what is to come.
Workers at the Wolfsburg plant are skilled and well-versed in computer technology. The plant uses recycled plastic inside and also provides 7,000 bicycles so workers can easily maneuver around the plant.
