The MINI production triangle in the UK with its plants at Hams Hall, Oxford and Swindon has received substantial investment of nearly £200 million to build the new model and to increase MINI production capacity by up to 20 percent. The new production triangle employs in total 6,350 associates, a number set to increase by 450 to 6,800 in the medium-term as production nears the maximum capacity of 240,000 MINIs per annum.

MINI now has its “Home of Production” in three plants. The production facilities at Hams Hall, Oxford and Swindon jointly produce MINI with increased capacity, flexibility and efficiency. The Hams Hall plant produces the new MINI petrol engines, Plant Oxford remains responsible for the body shell production, paint and assembly and Plant Swindon produces pressings and sub-assemblies.
