About us

The  UK  has  an  important  role  to  play  within  the  BMW  Group.  It  is  the  only  place  in  the  world  where  all  three  of  BMW  Group’s  brands  –  BMW,  MINI  and  Rolls-Royce  Motor  Cars  –  are  represented  by  manufacturing  operations.

The  growth  of  BMW  Group’s  UK  operations  has  been  significant.    MINI  Plant  Oxford,  the  heart  of  MINI  production,  began  producing  MINIs  in  2001  and  has  now  produced  over  three  million.  BMW  Plant  Hams  Hall  started  producing  4-cylinder  petrol  engines  in  2001.  Rolls-Royce  Motor  Cars  Limited  began  manufacturing  vehicles  at  its  Goodwood  plant  in  2003.  MINI  Plant  Swindon  has  been  the  main  supplier  of  MINI  body  panels  since  2005.

In  addition  to  its  manufacturing  sites,  BMW  Group  also  has  a  UK  Sales  and  Marketing  subsidiary  in  Farnborough  with  a  Vehicle  Distribution  Centre  in  Thorne,  near  Doncaster.

As  BMW  Group  has  grown  in  the  UK,  so  have  our  environmental  responsibilities.  Protecting  the  environment  is  an  obligation  we  take  very  seriously.  All  our  manufacturing  plants  worldwide  are  certified  to  the  International  Management  Standard  ISO  14001.  To  achieve  this  we  have  established  a  series  of  improvement  programmes  that  we  actively  develop  and  monitor.

BMW  Group  employs  around  8,000  people  directly  in  the  UK  with  an  additional  14,000  in  its  147-strong  Retailer  network  representing  BMW  and  MINI  brands.  The  company  has  invested  nearly  £2  billion  in  its  UK  operations  since  2000.  The  UK  is  BMW  Group’s  fourth  largest  sales  market  in  the  world.
