The CEO of BMW SA, Tim Abbott says the JD Power Platinum Quality Plant Award won by the Rosslyn plant is the first for any manufacturer in South Africa and the highest for any BMW plant in the world. The vehicles produced at Rosslyn are exported to the United States and South Korea.

He says BMW is enjoying excellent relations with the South African government and workforce, and intends to stay in South Africa for decades to come. Abbott says his company is ahead of the game most of the time with its innovative approach and investment in its people.

The CEO of BMW SA says they’re going to build market share in East and West Africa and will announce a new programme next week to support their intentions.
