BMW wants to produce cars in old Volvo-factory in Born

As mentioned before on Volvotips Nedcar (the former factory in Born where the Volvo 300-series, 400-series and S40/V40 were produced) is for sale. The Dutch company VDL (who produces buses, coaches and some other transport-related products) wants to take over Nedcar, but only when they’re sure a car company gives them a big order to produce cars.

Today there’s good news for the 1.500 employees of Nedcar: BMW declared just a few hours ago they want to produce cars in Born (the Netherlands)! Mitsubishi wants to leave Born before the end of this year and before the end of the year Nedcar should be sold, otherwise it would be closed.

As I mentioned before BMW is struggling with a production capacity for it’s Mini and since new models of the Mini are planned BMW needs extra capacity urgently and wants to start production at Nedcar in 2014. But the deal isn’t sealed yet: it’s up to Mitsubishi.
