Mini invests £250 million in the UK

BMW has announced another big investment in Mini production facilities on top of the £500 million announced last year.

This brings BMW's total investment to £1.75 billion since 2000. While the latest investment announcement does not imply a significant number of new jobs, it does provide job security for the 5,500 employees at the factories at Cowley (assembly), Birmingham (engines) and Swindon (body pressings).
