Last friday we’ve started with a meeting @ the ZF export center… a meeting about delivery, infill, quantity and turnover… a 2 hr meeting about a lot of BBT money:)
From left to right, Jerry, yours truly, our super contact Mariana, Alfredo, Belle, and Jessica.
Thanks for your service guys!
We continued our trip by Schadek… manufacturer of oil and water pumps, about 12 million units a year! Yes that’s massive…
We got a real nice lunch in the factory restaurant, Thanks Monique for guiding us…
and on the road to the next one…
We spotted this cool “taxi” down the road….:) Clearly a collectors car…:)
Next was a Fabio’s factory that make late-model tail lights… and we came right in time, as the tooling was broken… they needed help….
You need really this big of a machine to make the Beetle tail lights, yep… but bcause of the broken tooling its temporally out of service…
Shall we co invest in new tooling? The future will bring the answer. But we talked for sure!
This is how they assemble the tail lights… continuously production!
Eagle view of Fabio’s factory! This guy is real good!
Its scale models don’t worry…:)
Next and last for the day was a real Brazilian Kombi only restoration business.
Leo and Marco drive a hell of a business here, and work real hard!
Not exactly what You would think from Brazilian restorations, right?
He guys keep up the great job, you’re on the right path!
Always nice to see a picture board with only Belgian flyers in a workshop in Brazil!
Tomorrow we will report about our arrival in Curitiba, that was just MASSIVE!
