The MagicalMysteryPlantTour is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop a profound understanding of the underpinnings of one of the world’s most important and biggest industries.
This exclusive tour, limited to only 20 people due to capacity constraints, will take you around the world for private, behind-the-curtain visits of the world’s best car plants. These are not your run-of-the-mill plan tours. You will be taught by top industry experts what goes into planning, funding, building, and managing a car plant.
How much does a car plant cost?
How long does it take to build a car plant?
Should you build a car plant that spits out high volumes of cars at high speed?
Or should you rather build a highly flexible plant that can adapt to market demands?
How do you staff and manage a car plant?
How does the plant achieve consistent high quality?
Many of the plants we will see are normally closed to the public, you won’t get in there on your own. Having worked in the industry for decades, we have secured unprecedented access.
There is no such thing as the world’s best car plant. Each of the plants we will visit has been selected for being one of the best for their special purpose. We will see the biggest, and the smallest car plants. We will see no-expense-spared car plants, and lowest-cost-possible plants building lowest-cost-possible cars. We will see both huge single purpose car plants, and small, lightweight, flexible car plants. (OEMs: Sorry, the plan for the tour is fixed. But we’d love to come to you next time. Please send us a message.)
