NO FUTURE WITHOUT A PAST.
Every BMW is fitted with a piece of pure innovative power made in Landshut – and it’s been that way for the past half century: On 2 January 1967, Bayerische Motoren Werke acquired the medium-sized carmaker Hans Glas GmbH based in Dingolfing. At the time, about 140 people worked at the company’s Landshut site for vehicle components. In1969, the local newspaper, Landshuter Zeitung, ran the headline: “A present for Pentecost: BMW about to build cars in Landshut”. It marked the beginning of a real success story.
