BMW plans to resume production at a US plant on May 4April 25, 2020
From May 4, BMW Corporation intends to gradually restore production at its own car company in the American city of Spartanberg and a motorcycle company in Berlin, which were closed due to coronavirus. Such information on Friday, April 24, shared the portal DPA, relying on the press center of the automaker.
According to the portal, the production of cars in Germany will resume only from May 11 in the city of Dingolfing. From the same date, the company in Mexico will continue to operate.
The corporation, as noted in the press center, will again start production in Munich, Leipzig, Regensburg, South African Rosslin and at its mini-factory in Oxford, depending on the situation in the car market, but not earlier than May 18. In the current period in Munich, Dingolfing, Regensburg and Leipzig, approximately 20,000 BMW workers were transferred to shorter working hours.
According to DPA, as early as next Monday, German-made engine manufacturers should be ready to resume their activities.
Due to the cancellation of the auto show in Europe and America and a decrease in demand for its own products, as the portal emphasizes, BMW in March stopped the work of its own auto companies in Europe, South Africa, Mexico and America. Along with this, production at the largest enterprise of the corporation in the Chinese city of Shenyang resumed in February.
