BMW Group Plant Rosslyn has been the heart beat of BMW South Africa operations. Over the past four decades it moved from operating as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) vehicle production plant, assembling vehicles with limited customisation possibilities for the local market, to a world class plant capable of producing customised cars for discerning customers across the globe.
This evolution is largely due to BMW’s billion rand investment in the Rosslyn plant in the mid 90’s. The investment, used to upgrade the production facility into one of the most modern in the world, brought Rosslyn in line with other BMW Group plants across the world and earned it the title of BMW Group Plant Rosslyn. BMW continues to invest in the South African facility in preparation of the production of future models.
BMW Group Plant Rosslyn is currently producing the sixth generation of the 3 Series and is capable of producing up to 75 000 units per annum.
Over 85% of all BMW 3 Series vehicles produced at the Rosslyn plant are destined for BMW markets in the USA, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Australia, Sub-Saharan Africa and Canada.
