VW Phaeton Factory Photos

From: Volkswagen's 'Transparent Factory,' Dresden

Volkswagen's "Transparent Factory" is small, as automotive assembly plants go: At the end of 2007, it had about 380 employees, including 210 production workers.

To be hired by Die Gläserne Manufaktur, prospective assembly technicians must be comfortable with the idea of being watched--and, in some cases, questioned--by VW customers and tourists. (Phaeton buyers often visit the plant to watch their cars being built, so it isn't unusual to see a couple following a car as it makes its way through the assembly process.)
