The plant in Steyr, Austria, was established in 1979 and is the largest engine manufacturing site in the BMW Group. The company produces six-cylinder petrol engines, four- and six-cylinder diesel engines, as well as all of the diesel power units designed for the MINI. The site is also the central development centre for diesel engines in the BMW Group.
Products for all BMW series automobiles are manufactured in Steyr and delivered through a vast logistics network to other BMW assembly and engine sites. Engine components from other plants in Landshut, Munich and Berlin are also shipped to Steyr for further processing.
BMW engines are designed to meet high demands. That is why all core components are manufactured in-house: crankcases, crankshafts, cylinder heads and connecting rods. Each component reflects the precision, engineering competence and high quality that are the hallmarks of BMW engines. Today a wide range of BMW engines are assembled in Steyr. More than 3,600 associates produce some 1.2 million engines annually.
