BMW reportedly said on Wednesday it was not involved in any talks to build a car factory in Poland, denying a report in business tabloid Puls Biznesu.

Reuters said Puls quoted Erich Papke, head of the company’s Polish operations, as saying BMW was in talks to build a factory in southern Poland but BMW representatives in both Munich and Warsaw denied the report.

“At the moment there is no consideration of building a new production site,” a BMW spokesman at the group’s Munich headquarters told Reuters, adding that the company had 23 factories in 14 countries which provided enough capacity.

A BMW Poland spokeswoman reportedly said Papke had been misquoted.

“Puls Biznesu conducted an interview on a completely different topic…(Papke) said the concern is conducting talks everywhere, looking at the possibilities for component production and suppliers,” Diana Lyznik told Reuters.
