BMW unveils further £250m investment in UK operations

BMW Group has announced a further £250m investment in its UK manufacturing operations by the end of 2015 at its manufacturing plant in Oxford, steel body pressings operation at Swindon and engine plant at Hams Hall, near Birmingham.

This is to support the company’s international growth strategy for the MINI brand with increasing volumes and up to 10 different models in the new line-up in the mid-term.

It comes on top of the £500m UK investment announced in June 2011 and means additional job security for the 5,500 UK associates working in the so-called MINI UK Triangle plants.
