The team at BMW Group’s Hams Hall manufacturing plant, near Birmingham, is celebrating the production of five million engines. Since opening in 2001, the Hams Hall plant has been responsible for building award-winning three and four-cylinder petrol engines for both BMW and MINI models. Once complete, engines are shipped around the world to BMW Group facilities, such as the Spartanburg plant in South Carolina, for assembly.
“We are delighted to be celebrating our five millionth engine,” says plant director, Bernd Gress. “Our dedicated team works hard to ensure every one of those five million engines has been built to the highest standards of quality and dispatched promptly to one of our vehicle plants, so customers get their cars on time.”
This state-of-the-art manufacturing plant also includes a second assembly facility where engines are hand-built. This enables the plant to produce various types of engine, such as higher performance models like the BMW i8, the MINI John Cooper Works and the all-new BMW 1 Series flagship model, the M135i.
