Volkswagen plans to spend over €500 million on a new plant in Poznań which will manufacture large delivery vans, the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung has reported.
The Poznań factory would enable Volkswagen reduce its production costs.
The outsourcing of production to Poland would require approval from VW's supervisory board, which is not a foregone conclusion as the board is dominated by representatives of the company's German workforce which has tended to resist moves by management to move production abroad.
However, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported that the supervisory board is likely to give its appproval before March 13.
