VALLADOLID CARROSSERIE MONTAGE - RESA

The assembly unit is currently operating with just one shift while the bodywork unit has four.

Situation 

The Valladolid body assembly plant is located to the south of the city of Valladolid, in the centre of the Castilla y Leon region. It occupies a total area of 98,4 ha, with the plant's two buildings taking up 31,4 ha. It is located in an industrial zone, near a school, a hotel, a busy road and a farming area.
  
The plant is well positioned. It is 200 km from Madrid, on the main route between Paris and Lisbon. This makes it easy to ship goods by rail and road. The plant is 17 km from the international airport.

 

This plant will be the first of the Renault's factories in Spain to mass produce the electric car (Twizy).
