Go inside the Moto X assembly plant with Street View

Motorola’s been very proud of the Forth Worth, Texas assembly plant for its Moto X since first announcing the facility, sharing an inside look at the location in the days leading up to the Moto X launch. Now that the phone’s arrived, hundreds of thousands of handsets have moved through those doors. Despite being in operation already, Motorola claims that the Flextronics facility contracted to produce the phone only officially launched as of yesterday, but to celebrate the event, we’re getting a first-hand look at where the magic happens, courtesy of Google Street View.

Street View’s been expanding its imagery with off-road and indoor content for a while now, and this latest addition brings us right to the birthplace of the Moto X. While it doesn’t let us get down on the floor itself, right in the thick of things, the second-floor view from the offices surrounding the assembly area offers a nice perspective without getting in the way.

CEO Dennis Woodside has also been talking more about this plant and its output, and claims that it’s currently processing about 100,000 Moto X handsets a week. That figure includes both custom designs as well as bulk orders of the plain black or white handsets. Even at that rate, this is apparently just a jumping off point, and Motorola’s got even bigger plans for the future.
