WELCOME TO BMW GROUP PLANT ROSSLYN.

VISIT THE HOME OF BMW PRODUCTION IN SOUTH AFRICA

BMW Group Plant Rosslyn has been at the heart of BMW Group South Africa operations since 1973. The first BMW plant built outside of Germany, Plant Rosslyn has moved from operating as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) vehicle assembly plant to a world-class plant capable of producing customised cars for discerning customers across the globe.


This evolution is largely due to BMW’s investments in the Rosslyn plant over the years, making up more than R11bn since 1994. The investments have been used to upgrade the production facility into one of the most modern in the world, bringing Rosslyn in line with other BMW Group plants across the world in terms of efficiency, sustainability and flexibility. The plant won the JD Power Platinum award for Quality in 2015.


Also in 2015, BMW Group invested R6bn into Plant Rosslyn to upgrade the facility for the production of the BMW X3, which ramped up in early 2018. BMW Group Plant Rosslyn is capable of producing up to 76000 units per annum.


More than 90% of all BMW X3s produced at Plant Rosslyn are destined for BMW markets overseas, predominantly in Europe.
