BMW Production Plant In Croatia?

Famous German car manufacturer BMW are set to build a new factory, and according to Slovakian media, Croatia is in the running as a location for the new factory.

The Bavarian company is set to expand its operations and Slovakian media claim that the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia are all possible locations. “It’s clear that we need a bigger production capacity, and one of the plants we would like to build in south-east Europe,” said BMW board member Ian Robertson.

The proposed investment of over one billion euros would bring over 1,000 new jobs to the nation BMW selects. Slovakia, who are front-runners, already have German car maker Volkswagen, Korean company Kia and France’s PSA Peugeot Citroen with plants there.
