The BMW Group expands its production capacity and grows its workforce to the “Dingolfing Electric Trains Production Competence Center” faster than initially planned.
Due to the growing demand for electrified cars, the plant expects the number of modules required for the production of high-voltage batteries to double compared to the previous year. The number of electric motors required will also increase significantly.
Michael Nikolaides, production manager for electric motors and powertrains at BMW Group, says: “We are starting a massive expansion of the Competition Center for the Production of Electric Rail Trains at Dingolfing: from 8,000 square meters, as it currently covers, at 80,000 square meters in the future. This is the place where we produce rolling powertrain components for our fully or partially electric models. By the end of the year, we will increase the number of employees in this section from 600 to over 1,400”. In the medium term, up to 2,000 employees will work on electric motors, battery modules, and high voltage batteries at Dingolfing.
