AUTO1 Group, Europe’s leading digital automotive platform for buying and selling used cars online, announced the signing of a rent agreement for a production center in Warsaw for the purpose of reconditioning used cars for Autohero. Bringing used car production in-house allows Autohero to fully control each step of the process, which will lead to a faster and more efficient production process.
The Warsaw production center consists of 22,200 m², including a production workshop and a yard for temporary car storage, which increases Autohero’s production capacity by up to 18,000 cars per year.
AUTO1 Group will create more than 275 new jobs for car specialists in the production center of Autohero in Warsaw across different steps of the production. They include repairing, cleaning, as well as capturing photos & videos to ensure the outstanding Autohero quality standard. The production center in Warsaw commences operations immediately.
Christian Bertermann, CEO and Co-Founder of AUTO1 Group, says: “After successfully securing in-house production capacities in Hemau and Berlin/Brandenburg in Germany, we are now expanding our international production strategy into the next market. We are very proud to sign our new production center in Poland’s metropolis Warsaw, which will help us to further scale our superior product proposition. Customers are seeking to buy their next car entirely online and are increasingly moving away from traditional time-consuming and unsatisfying car buying experiences. We are excellently positioned to meet the strongly increasing demand.”
