Huge Car Factory – Ford | Mega Factories

Henry Ford personally is said to have chosen the location of the Ford factory in Cologne Niehl. Today over 1,000 new cars are assembled here every day. Over 1200 industrial robots complete the tasks, where once factory workers stood side by side along the assembly line. 18,000 employees keep the facility running, which is like a mini-city on the outskirts of Cologne. Located directly on the Rhine, the new cars are exported to over 60 nations. Man-power meets high-tech: Industry 4.0 is already being implemented in many factories in the form of integrated processes and production facilities. The SeriesMega Factories goes into the hallowed halls of big industry. In the production plants of companies like Bosch, Gira, Seltmann, or Deutz, you’ll encounter the latest robots, machines, and technologies as well as the people who make all of it possible. From commercial vehicles to semiconductors to everyday objects, Wunder-Werke shows which factories produce them.
