Personnel change at Audi plant Ingolstadt: plant director Albert Mayer to retire, Achim Heinfling to be new plant director

Albert Mayer, 65, a genuine Audi veteran, looks back on 40 years at the Audi and Volkswagen Group. Peter Kössler, Audi’s Board of Management Member for Production, praised his commitment as plant director: “Over the past three and a half years, Albert Mayer has dedicated himself to Audi’s home location of Ingolstadt as plant director, and has put his heart and soul into the plant and the concerns of his team. Albert Mayer has been particularly successful in making production more flexible. Until he retires in the fall, he will continue in his role as plant director with his full vigor – just like he has always done.”

Achim Heinfling, 56 years old and a mechanical engineer by training, has been at Audi for almost 30 years and is currently managing director of Audi Hungaria. Board of Management Member for Production Kössler: “In Achim Heinfling, we have found a worthy successor for Albert Mayer as plant director, both professionally and personally. Heinfling combines great expertise in automotive and engine construction with a high degree of analytical competence and empathy. In his function as managing director of Audi Hungaria, he has already gained extensive experience as a plant director. These are the best prerequisites for steering the Ingolstadt plant through challenging times into a successful future.”

Alfons Dintner is to be Achim Heinfling’s successor as the managing director of the Audi plant in Győr, Hungary. Dintner also brings great experience as a plant director: Until May 2019, he was managing director of Audi México; before that, he was plant director and general manager at Audi Brussels. Dintner is currently in charge of the Audi pre-series center.
