BMW to close Oxford factory for two days as hard Brexit looms

Mini factory in Cowley to shut on 31 October as part of car
firm’s preparations for no deal

BMW will close its Mini factory in Oxford for two days on 31
October to guard against potential disruption as the carmaker
prepares for Brexit.

The German company’s chief financial officer, Nicolas Peter,
said the Cowley plant would shut on 31 October – Brexit deadline
day – and 1 November to safeguard the company’s logistics.
Peter said BMW had no plans to shift manufacturing to other sites
yet but that Cowley was likely to produce fewer cars under a
no-deal Brexit.
