Spotlight on HMMC
The HMMC facility is a zero-emission factory and during construction in 2007, over 1.100 trees and bushes were removed and replanted around the area surrounding the plant.

A closed-system paint shop is in operation, featuring the latest air-cleaning technology and all Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are combusted and the air produced then cooled before being vented - ensuring no VOCs or heat is emitted from the factory. The use of three main on-site suppliers, featuring an automatic just-in sequence, means that 200 trucks are saved per day.

The HMMC facility also features a 3,3 km open test track on the factory ground ensuring every vehicle is tested for dynamic properties (engine performance, handling, gear shifting, brake performance etc.), noise and functions (hill assistant, PKB, washers, wipers etc.) along with a full under body check for fluid leakage and assembly conditions.

Initially producing 114.000 units in 2009, the HMMC facility has continued to grow each year, and with the inclusion of third shift in 2011 allowing the facility to run around the clock Monday to Friday, 300.000 units are produced per annum.

Ensuring a positive presence in the local area, HMMC have focussed on cooperation with technical apprentice schools, technical secondary schools and the Technical University Ostrava, which sees them provide pre-production cars and transmissions for use as teaching aides, as well as providing advisors, visiting schools and organising site tours.
