Tim Abbott, BMW Group South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa CEO

BMW Group South Africa on 2 October 2017, announced an additional ZAR160 million to be pumped into the Rosslyn manufacturing facility to enhance production line-speed.

The enhancement raises the maximum production capacity by almost 10%, from 71 000 units to 76 000 units, leaving the plant with excellent potential in the future to produce the highest volume ever in its 44 year history.

The additional investment comes on the back of ZAR6 billion announced in November 2015 for the preparation of BMW Plant Rosslyn to produce the new BMW X3.

“We are greatly encouraged by the amazing performance of our BMW X-models around the world. This growth trend supports our decision to produce the BMW X3 in South Africa. The potential for the future is exciting as ultimately production volume is determined by global demand for our products,” says Tim Abbott, BMW Group South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa Chief Executive Officer. 

Plans to create a centre of production excellence at the company’s Rosslyn Plant is well under way with the largest infrastructure upgrade in the history of the facility completed and staff upskilled in state-of-the-art technologies.

BMW Plant Rosslyn will continue to build the BMW 3 Series until early next year.

“BMW Group South Africa continues to invest in our future, our employees and the country,” concludes Abbott.
