following two years’ work and an outlay of more than €35 million, the dieppe plant is capable of assembling the alpine ‘A110’s’ all-aluminum body and chassis, while the paint shop’s new sanding and cleaning robots guarantee a premium quality finish. as alpine’s historic home, the factory built by jean rédélé in 1969 has long specialized in the production of small sporty models. following its conversion to alliance manufacturing standards and, more specifically, for production of the new alpine a110, the dieppe plant is today qualified to produce premium vehicles.

in parallel to this transformation, the dieppe plant has raised workforce levels by 60 percent with the recruitment of 151 staff over the past two years, and all 392 employees have been given four weeks’ (140 hours) training specific to production of the sports coupé.

‘the revival of alpine production in dieppe, where the original berlinette was made almost 50 years ago, presented us with a challenge, but we rose to it together, with backing from the state, the region, the local urban district, groupe renault and the alliance. the excellence and french-style elegance that the brand stands for are more than just claims; today, in dieppe they are an industrial reality’, comments carlos ghosn.
