As Giga Berlin overcomes its hiring challenges and approaches full production, we take you into the details of this new development that’ll see over 5000 new people hired.
Giga Berlin is one electric car factory that’s making waves in Europe with the production of the highly sought-after Model Y.
The process of clearing an additional 170 acres of woods at the site of the Gigafactory Berlin in preparation for a huge expansion of the electric car factory was started by Tesla in October 2022.
The complex, which is situated in a sizable wooded region, now takes up around 300 hectares of land, all of which was purchased by Tesla for use in the massive industrial operation.
[It was necessary to clear up a substantial portion of the forested terrain in order to provide sufficient space for the building that was to be constructed.]
The expansion of the plant and the achievement of its aim of improved output and efficiency both require that the forests be cleared, which is an essential stage in the process.
[The factory is expanding its manpower. In a recent employment expansion spree, the company targets 8500 new hires.]
GIGA BERLIN’S EXPANSION
Due to the fact that Tesla is a relatively new brand in the employment market and has received negative feedback from customers, the Tesla Giga Berlin factory has had trouble finding enough staff to meet its full production capability.
Despite this, the business was able to overcome the challenge, and there is evidence to imply that the site is coming closer and closer to its first growth stage of employment. The plant is well on its way to accomplishing its objective, and the requisite number of workers to achieve full production is now within reach.
This advancement is necessary for the facility to continue production of electric cars and other components, which will reduce the demand for imports from outside sources.
It seems like Tesla’s Giga Berlin factory has resolved its employee shortage and is on the cusp of reaching full production capacity. Even though it has received negative press and is new to the job market, the facility has reportedly employed 8,500 workers, much above the 12,000 required to finish the “first expansion stage.”
The rising number of employees at the plant has prompted consideration of adding a third production shift. Giga Berlin has reported a production rate of 3,000 cars per week, or around 150,000 vehicles per year. With a full workforce, the facility could produce more EVs and more parts, lowering reliance on foreign manufacturers.
ECONOMIC DEMOCRATIC PARTY
The decision made by the Grünheide officials to allow Tesla to expand their Giga Berlin facility by purchasing an additional 100 hectares of wooded land was met with mixed reactions.
While some saw it as a positive step towards increasing production and employment opportunities, others were more critical of the decision. The Ecological Democratic Party, in particular, expressed their disappointment with the lack of citizen participation in the decision-making process.
They believe that the expansion will have a negative impact on the local environment and habitats and that the voices of the community should have been taken into consideration.
Furthermore, the construction of logistics area, service center, daycare center and training rooms, which are part of the expansion plan, is seen as a necessary step for Tesla to increase production capacity and improve the working conditions for the employees.
[According to Teslarati, “It is unclear if Tesla will face any actual penalties or what the investigation will find regarding Tesla’s toxic material handling. However, if the situation is similar to the recycling plant, Tesla may be forced to close its toxic materials warehouse. Without the warehouse in use, and presumably hazardous materials being created or used at the plant, it is unclear what will happen to the materials.”]
According to Thomas Löb, the head of the EDP, there should be no plans for expanding the factory as Tesla has already caused enough environmental damage. He argues that the company has destroyed a significant number of trees and taken over many locations, and therefore, there should be no further expansion of the Gigafactory.
This statement highlights the concern and opposition that many have towards the expansion of the factory, as it is believed that it will cause further harm to the environment.
Furthermore, Löb points out that the company should focus on mitigating the negative impacts of their actions rather than continuing to cause more damage. After buying Twitter, there are also rumors that Musk is looking to buy Donald Trump’s Truth Social.
