BMW Group Plant Regensburg receives EFQM Excellence Award

BMW Group Plant Regensburg is this year’s winner of the prestigious EFQM Excellence Award. The award recognises the continuous, collaborative efforts of both employees and managers, focusing not only on today’s production, but also on future challenges. At the award ceremony held on 22 October in Brussels, the plant was recognised as an “excellent organisation” in many areas. The jury found the flexibility, management culture and readiness to embrace change at the Regensburg location to be exemplary, as well as the integration of employees, partner companies and social groups from the surrounding areas.

The European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) presents the award each year, assessing the performance of companies from all different industries. The 16 companies from across Europe who competed for the award this year underwent a thorough evaluation. The excellent performance of BMW Group Plant Regensburg is based on its long-term strategy and clear mission statement. Employees and managers follow these guidelines to produce top-quality premium vehicles in a cost-efficient manner. This ensures that when and how processes are improved is never left to chance. Changes are managed systematically and their success measured. Thanks to the combined efforts of managers and staff, today’s tasks can be mastered in an efficient way that allows solutions to be developed for the future at the same time.


The extraordinary flexibility that allows BMW Group Plant Regensburg to produce nine vehicle variants on a single production line proves that excellence is not an end in itself. New models are quickly and smoothly integrated into series production – most recently, the 2 Series Gran Tourer and the X1, which will be launched on 24 October.
