Audi Hungaria Motor Kft / Production - Gyor Hungary
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Audi AG - Engine production in Győr already began in late 1993 with pre-series production. The engine plant was officially opened in October 1994. In opening this plant, Audi not only safeguarded its international competitiveness, it also created a strategic base in Hungary that increasingly gained in importance. Győr now produces almost the entire range of Audi engines.
Engine production started with the four-cylinder five-valve engine with a displacement of 1.8 liters, in both naturally aspirated and turbo versions. V6 engines with a displacement of 2.4, 2.7, 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2 liters have also been built at Győr since 1998. The volume production of 4.2-liter eight-cylinder engines was started at the end of 1997. By this time, diesel engines with pump-injector technology were also produced at the Győr site.
The product range was expanded in 2002 with a new generation of engines featuring FSI gasoline direct injection; the connecting rod production line for four-cylinder diesel engines began operation two years later. In April 2006, Audi Hungaria brought a particularly powerful engine onto the market -- the 5.2-liter ten-cylinder gasoline engine with FSI technology. Another milestone followed that same year: The company presented the Audi Valvelift System -- a future-oriented, highly efficient and at the same time surprisingly simple valve-control technology.

Also rolling off the assembly line at the BMW Group's largest production plant are the BMW 7 Series and BMW 5 Series models. The flexible and efficient processes at the plant combine state-of-the-art production technology with a standard of quality defined by meticulous craftsmanship in the manufacture of premium cars configured to customer requirements.
BMW Motorcycle Production at Berlin Plant
The first BMW car, was built in Berlin: on 22 March 1929 the first BMW 3/15 PS's left the production hall rented by BMW near Berlin-Johannisthal Airport. The first BMW motorcycle, the R 32 featuring an air-cooled twin-flat engine and shaft drive, was presented a few years earlier in 1923 at the German Car Show in Berlin. The BMW Plant Berlin was part of the team almost from the start: the history of BMW AG started with the production of aircraft engines in Berlin.
The first BMW motorcycle built in Berlin - a BMW R 60/2 -- came off the assembly line in 1967, but the motorcycle of the Berlin Plant in the former aircraft engine plant started much earlier back in 1949 with production of the first parts for motorcycles still built in Munich back then. Over the years, motorcycle production was shifted step-by-step from Munich to Berlin. And to this day, Berlin remains the only production plant for BMW motorcycles the world over. Nearly all parts and components required for this purpose were manufactured at the Plant, with a total workforce of not quite 400 employees working in motorcycle production back then. Apart from consistently modernising the facilities, motorcycle production as a whole was substantially expanded in 1983 upon the introduction of the K-Series, BMW AG investing some DM 500 million in an entirely new assembly building and system, as well as a highly automated production line for engine components. Ten years later the Company modernised and expanded the Assembly Hall and the Machining Shop for engine and chassis components upon the introduction of the new Boxer generation. And to assemble the single-cylinder F 650 models built at the Berlin Plant since spring 2000, an additional assembly line was installed to provide the capacity required.
Today a total of 1,923 employees build up to 540 motorcycles a day in BMW's three model series -- motorcycles with a single-, two- or four-cylinder power unit. To achieve the growth targets set by the Company in the highly competitive motorcycle market, the BMW Group invested a total of more than Euro 117 million in the expansion of motorcycle production in the years 2001-2003. In February 2002 the Berlin Plant opened a brand-new production building for motorcycle assembly which, with its "intelligent" C-hook system, is absolutely unique throughout the worldwide motorcycle industry. Ultra-modern five-directional machining centres, a high-tech 10-directional laser cutting system, and a valve seat force-fit machine developed exclusively by BMW for production purposes are further examples of truly outstanding efficiency and flexibility -- and, at the same time, serve to guarantee premium quality.The same premium quality is ensured by the new Engine Assembly Shop with its highly flexible assembly system and high-tech testing equipment, which successfully entered operation in September 2003. Since November 2003 the BMW Plant Berlin has been painting motorcycle parts in a new Paintshop, using trendsetting technologies and working to the highest standards of environmental protection. In all, this makes BMW's Motorcycle Plant in Berlin one of the most modern motorcycle plants in the world. Apart from motorcycles, the Berlin Plant has been manufacturing components such as brake discs for car production ever since 1979. Accordingly, Berlin plays an active role within the BMW Group's production network, supplying automotive parts.
