Elon Musk Visits Giga Berlin to Support Employees

Elon Musk visited Giga Berlin to support employees after the recent attack on the factory. Electricity was restored on Monday evening and production has now resumed.

The Tesla CEO arrived at the German factory on Wednesday with his son, X Æ A-XII. The visit came at a much-needed time when employees were unsettled due to a recent attack on the company by an extremist group. Musk was greeted with applause and chants of “Elon.” He spoke to employees in a tent set up at the Giga Berlin site. The CEO brought with him a positive attitude, which is so needed now.

The factory director, André Thierig, also thanked the employees for handling the situation well. “This is an attack on a Gigafactory,” he said. “We all stick together.”

Electricity was restored to Giga Berlin on Monday evening local time. Production resumed on Wednesday. According to works council chairperson, Michaela Schmitz, all staff will return to work with an early shift.

“I feel a huge sense of relief,” Schmitz said. “People are excited to get back to work.”

On Tuesday, local media reported that in addition to visiting Giga Berlin, Musk will also meet with local politicians. Among them are Brandenburg Prime Minister, Dietmar Woidke, and Economics Minister, Jörg Steinbach. At the moment, the meetings have not been officially confirmed.

The incident underscored that Tesla is not safe in Brandenburg. The state still needs to take steps to protect both businesses and residents from such attacks. As a result of the attack, several settlements with thousands of people were left without electricity. At the meetings, Musk and officials are expected to look for solutions and ways to conduct business safely.
