As BMW aims to increase its profit, the German automaker has opened its third assembly plan in the Chinese city of Shenyang, according to a latest report by Xinhua news agency.
The plant is set to have a total of 450,000 unit production capacity annually thanks to a whopping 7.6 billion yuan investment by the company. The report stated that the new assembly line has been designed with the German industrial 4.0 concept and has incorporated sophisticated technologies such as virtual reality, augmented manufacturing, laser scanning and bug data analysis in the whole production process.
The new plant has been established within BMW’s Shenyang complex which produced a total of 316,000 cars last year. This new added plant is set to increase the capacity of the complex which is responsible for production of more than one-eighth of total vehicles by the company. Since its initiation back in 2003, the factory has generated more than 16,000 employment opportunities in the city.
