Plant Oxford is the heart and birthplace of MINI production. The plant is where all the parts are assembled and come together to make road-ready MINI models.
It is the largest and oldest of the three MINI plants across the UK. There is also Plant Swindon where the body panels and some assemblies and Plant Hams Hill which produces petrol engines.
Manufactured to individual customer specifications, hundreds of MINIs leave the plant’s assembly lines each day, off to meet new owners in more than 110 countries around the world.
Three UK plants have had a part to play in MINI production; Plant Hams Hall makes engines, Plant Swindon produces body pressings and sub-assemblies for MINI.
This all this comes together at Plant Oxford with body shell production, paint and final assembly.
Since production of the new MINI started in 2001, almost 3 million cars have been made at Plant Oxford. But the plant’s heritage goes back much further than that – it is a site with 100 years of automotive manufacturing history, which has become a landmark in the ‘city of dreaming spires’.
