  • The new Control Tower will manage the location in real time of the more than 16 million parts needed in SEAT Martorell every day to make 2,300 cars
  • Thanks to this new system, customers can reconfigure their vehicles even after placing their order
  • The Control Tower has been shortlisted for the SEAT Innovation Day, which single out the company’s most innovative, employee-driven projects
