Three million BMW Mini engines built in Hams Hall Birmingham UK
The success story for the Mini just goes on and on. You have only to look on our roads to see how many of these excellent cars are on our roads. The factory where the Mini is made is the first plant to be built outside of Germany and is a compliment to all the people in Birmingham, with its great tradition of building good quality cars by a good quality workforce.
The factory that builds the BMW Mini is about 800 strong, and is expected to increase in size in the near future.
Last year (2011) , the British factory produced around 1.3 million new cars, and this is expected to rise in 2012. This is a fantastic result and it is anticipated that the UK car market, thanks to the Mini, will be a net exporter of cars for the first time since 1976 a great achievement for the British car market and their workers.
We at Pellon Auto-centre love servicing and working on the new BMW Minis. They are a pleasure to work on and they have become a large part of our car servicing daily life. We are also a part of Unipart Car Care Centres (UCCC) and can offer the best parts service and warranty to all the Mini owners.
