SEAT has invested 57 million euros in a new metal press and two new hot stamping lines for its factory in Barcelona. The inauguration of these facilities took place on the occasion of “BCN Day”, an event which was attended by 3,000 people including employees, friends and family members.
The new PXL press installed in SEAT Barcelona involved an investment of just over 31 million euros and it will boost the productivity of this metal press compared to the previous ones thanks to greater automation and manufacturing speed, as well as an advanced robot system. A little over 25 million euros was also invested in two new hot stamping lines that will also help increase efficiency, speed and precision in the production process. In addition to this overall 57 million euro investment, in the past five years SEAT has allocated 6.5 million euros to improving, renovating and modernising the plant.
