BMW training center set to open in San Luis Potosi by November
German automaker BMW plans to open its Training Center coming November. It will be the first building to formally start operations inside the complex in San Luis Potosi where the company aims to begin the 3 Series sedan production in 2019, local authorities revealed in a press conference.
Gustavo Puente Orozco, head of the Economic Development Secretariat in the state, said there are 250 workers being trained at the moment. They have already been hired and are expected to join 100 more who have already passed through this process at training facilities in Germany.
The official said that the company has already begun to work on a scheme to obtain territorial reserves that will allow future expansion projects.
“For what they have told us they want to have something defined in order to avoid complications like the ones that they had at the time in the Spartanburg, North Carolina plant, where they had to look for reserves little by little to complete their expansions,” he said.
