The BMW Group is one of the most successful manufacturers of automobiles and motorcycles in the world, with its BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce brands. As a global company, the BMW Group operates 24 production facilities in 13 countries and has a global sales network in more than 140 countries.
As part of this global network, BMW South Africa prides itself on world beating standards that have been reached and exceeded over three decades of involvement in South Africa. As the BMW Group’s oldest subsidiary outside of Europe, BMW South Africa’s outward-looking, global attitude is complemented by a thorough appreciation of the needs of the employees that have made the company what it is today. Our commitment to our people, to the upliftment of the South African economy and South Africa as a whole is what sets BMW apart as one of South Africa’s leading producers of luxury, high-performance vehicles.
The company is unique within the BMW Group representing a microscopic view of BMW AG, with a sales and marketing division, a production facility, and all administrative functions forming part of a single corporate entity. This complexity, linked to BMW’s integral integration into the social, economic and political fabric of South Africa, has cemented BMW South Africa’s reputation as an ideal training ground for BMW Group executive management. No less than three of the current BMW AG Management Board Members have served as executive Board members of BMW South Africa.
