Italian carmaker Fiat has been handed the coveted International Automotive Lean Production 2012 award for its work at the Fiat plant at Pomigliano D'Arco.

The prize will be awarded to the manufacturer in a ceremony in Leipzig, Germany, on November 7th.

It comes after the plant was judged on a number of categories, especially including quality, maintenance, logistics and personnel development.

Stefan Ketter, chief manufacturing officer of Fiat S.p.A, welcomed the prize, saying it spays homage to all those who have worked in Pomigliano in recent years.

"Through World Class Manufacturing, the production system in use in Fiat and Chrysler plants, the most sophisticated modern production standards have been implemented in Pomigliano, and they have now become a model for the other plants in the Group," he commented.

"We are proud that the results achieved have been acknowledged by such internationally acclaimed experts."

Meanwhile, Fiat recently announced a refresh of the popular 500citycar, unveiling new trim levels and six new colourway options.
