Inside Nissan’s Sunderland factory

Post by Rob » Thu Nov 03, 2016 9:50 am

As one of the most efficient car plants in the world, Nissan Sunderland builds half a million Qashqais, Jukes, Notes, Leafs and now Infiniti Q30s a year, at such a speed that raw material is turned into a car in less than a day. Extrapolate Henry Ford’s eureka moment forward through a century of technological progress and you wind up here, in a cathedral of manufacturing in which men, women and robots create 115 cars an hour in a heavy metal ballet of collaborative effort.

If anyone is interested in seeing the factory for themselves Nissan used to offer guided tours. Ive been twice and arranged for another group to tour.
I am no longer in contact with the person who arranged the tours for me but it is possible to arrange them as a group if people so wished.
