Volkswagen only chose the best when it came to a system which would ensure the safe evacuation of their employees should an emergency arise. Over 40% of VWSA's total planned production volume in 2009 would be exported. “However, the situation in the global and domestic markets remains extremely volatile and depressed and as a result, our total overall production for 2009 is approximately 30% down on 2008.”
VWSA's initial export of vehicles occurred in the early 90s with the clinching of an export deal for 12,500 left-hand drive Jettas, destined for China. The company then proceeded to win orders for third generation Golf GTI's to the United Kingdom, a significant order for fourth generation Golfs to Europe, and, in 2004, started exporting Polos and new Golfs to the Asia Pacific region.

Following on its Jetta export heritage, the company secured the order to export the latest Jetta model to countries including Australia, Japan, and Great Britain.

The TOA VX-2000 Integrated Voice Evacuation System (covered by a 5 Year Warranty), originally built to comply with EN60849:2005 (adopted by SA as SANS60849) is ideal for this type of application where there are multiple zones and each floor is to be treated as an independent zone which is capable of having its own dedicated microphone for the Fire Marshall controlling that floor.

It also provides for Multiple Zone and Fireman's microphones on the system, each with their own priority status as well as phased evacuation as multiple messages and or tones can be broadcast in different zones / areas simultaneously.

The entire system is self-monitored every 100 seconds with fault indications registering on the rack equipment as well as the control microphones. Logs are automatically generated (announcements, system faults, inputs, automatic messages and alarm tones, faulty lines, etc).

It is also possible to utilize the system for BGM (Background Music) as each zone is able to have its own music source and volume levels or the same source can be routed to specific zones, a group of zones or all zones). White noise too, can be integrated with the system.
