Close to EUR 400 million was invested in 2017 in what BMW calls its most modern European engine factory. There engines are developed, planned and assembled, which are used, for example, in the BMW 5 Series manufactured by Magna Steyr for the global market.

An expansion of the facility in Salzburg is planned, and new corporate headquarters will be built at a cost of more than EUR 20 million. The site will coordinate sales and distribution for twelve countries in Central and South East Europe. According to BMW Austria Managing Director Morawa, the company has the largest workforce in its history. Another 170 people are to be hired by March 2018. On balance, the automobile producer employs more than 5,200 people in Austria.

Austria’s economic performance benefits the well-being of the population

When companies plan to open a subsidiary abroad, a decisive role is played by hard criteria such as the tax burden, market opportunities, location and logistics, (research) infrastructure and the pool of well educated, specialized employees. But there are other factors which are highly relevant for long-term corporate success and are also taken into account in the final decision of globally operating companies, such as the low number of strike days, high level of social peace, political and legal stability and the low number of natural catastrophes.
