The first 25 employees are being trained at the BMW Training Center, that was inaugurated in September 2015
BMW is setting the first stone of its new industrial building in San Luis Potosi (SLP) this upcoming June, said Raymond Wittmann, Plant Planning VP.
$1 billion are being invested in this new factory, which is expected to start operations in 2019.
Wittmann reports that 100 professionals are working in Mexico, as other 100 work in Munich, Germany, to design and build these facilities, and the first 25 employees are being trained at the BMW Training Center, that was inaugurated in September 2015.
"We have the first 25 trainees, in collaboration with the Technological University of San Luis Potosi, enrolled in the dual Germany education program".
In addition, "this is the first city in the world that will have three large-capacity assembling plants. This is an advantage for the region and for Mexico, but it stands as an infrastructure challenge".
150,000 vehicles will be produced in these facilities, and 1,500 direct employees will be hired.
