Keep The VW Family Bond Tight

Thursday, February 13, 2014

VW is an outstanding contributor to what makes this city great.  It hand-picked all of you special people to join in the great experiment to put Chattanooga on the map as the maker of the award-winning and best-looking car on the road.  And you did it. 

Look around you and be proud of your accomplishments in a superior facility unmatched in this country and the opportunities for success, much of which can be attributed to company-sponsored job training or advanced education with a look to a future with you in it.  You are special people in a special facility with a unique opportunity to be in the world's spotlight because of what you do, and nothing else.   

Keep that VW family bond tight, your freedoms secure, and your clients happy and proud.  My next car would be one you make.
