Mississauga, Ontario—BMW Group Canada has broken ground on a new Regional Parts Distribution Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, set to commence operations in the summer of 2018.

“This purpose-built 280,000 square foot distribution facility will allow us to deliver parts faster than our previous service offer,” said Hans Blesse, president and CEO of BMW Group Canada.

The new facility will be 50 percent larger and will accommodate future expansion opportunities supporting the company’s customer base and their service expectations.

“2016 marks our 30th anniversary in Canada and our 100th anniversary globally. After a remarkable 25 consecutive years of growth in Canada, it is the right time to expand and invest in our customers and our future,” Blesse said
BMW Group’s regional distribution centre is strategically positioned in Mississauga. The proximity to the airport, railyards, and major highways will expedite inbound and outbound shipments. Being able to take advantage of Metrolinx transit will deliver a more satisfying and sustainable commuter experience for our associates and staff.

“Mississauga is delighted to welcome BMW’s new distribution facility to our city,” said Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga. “As a world-renowned auto maker and innovator, we know BMW will bring good jobs to our community and strengthen our city’s profile as a destination for business. I’m pleased that we are able to offer what companies like BMW are looking for – access to transit routes, unparalleled logistics infrastructure, as well as an unrivaled quality of life and a highly educated workforce.”

“As a major developer of industrial, office, and retail projects at transit hubs across the GTA, First Gulf is proud to develop and build this new, state-of-the-art facility for BMW,” said First Gulf CEO David Gerofsky.
