The Indonesian assembled new BMW 3-series ready for delivery

BMW Group Indonesia rolled-out the locally assembled sixth-generation of BMW 3-series, with the new BMW 328i and BMW 320i ready for delivery to customers in Indonesia.

Launched in June 2012 in Indonesia, the BMW 3-series is the fourth model assembled at the Gaya
Motor plant at Sunter, north of Jakarta. Klaus Meissner, Head of CKD, Quality and Production BMW Group, and the management of BMW Group Indonesia and PT Astra International Tbk witnessed the roll-out of the new vehicles.

"BMW Group Indonesia has ramped up its production activities in Indonesia since 2011 in line with the commitment of a new investment of Rp 100-billion to assemble additional four models in the country. As the world's most successful premium car manufacturer, BMW Group's expansion of its production activities highlights Indonesia's significant and growing position in the world economy," said Ramesh Divyanathan, President Director of BMW Group Indonesia.

The production of BMW models is centered at the plant of PT Gaya Motor, which is a unit of the BMW Group's long-standing partner in Indonesia, PT Astra International. 

"We are pleased with our partnership with Gaya Motor, and the plant applies high standard processes, quality control and safety requirements," said Klaus Meissner. "This guarantees that all BMW locally-assembled models fulfill the stringent demands of quality premium cars as well as the expectation of our customers in Indonesia."

"Now we have ramped up our production rate to 10 units per day for the four models assembled in the plant," said Josef Weichinger, BMW Group's  Plant representative in Jakarta.

"The production launch of the new BMW 3-series is supported by 12 experts from our German plants. They have provided training on assembly processes and quality requirements for about two months. The employees are very capable to understand and implement our high production standards and the key to our successful launch was the smooth interaction with our German experts. We are very pleased with the overall result. Gaya Motor plant consistently meets BMW's worldwide high standard for production and quality."
