The BMW Group is investing DM 1 billion (approx £400 million; $US580 million) in the 170,000-square metre plant near Birmingham in the Midlands, creating some 1,500 jobs when production reaches full volume. The new plant will also create numerous jobs in the supply industry and at BMW's existing locations in Berlin, Landshut and Steyr.
