- “Manufacturing technologies in the digital age: connected plant, robotics, optimised maintenance tools, 3D printing”.
- “Sustainable plant: resource optimisation, eco-design, more compact facilities”.

The company’s manufacturing base features 45 production centres spanning across the globe – 25 vehicle plants and 20 component plants.
“Our Group is on the road to the plant of the future. It’s a really exciting challenge,” stated Yann Vincent, Executive Vice President of Supply Chain and Manufacturing at Groupe PSA.
