VDL Nedcar to take on more staff for new Mini order

mini-countrymanDutch car maker VLD Nedcar has won an order to build a new type of Mini for German car manufacturer BMW, which will create some 1,200 jobs.

The plant in Limburg already produces the three-door Mini and the Mini Cabrio and will now add a new generation of Mini Countryman to the range. The new car will be built exclusively in Born for the global market.

The new order will take the total workforce at the plant up to 4,000 plus 1,200 robots. Local officials are already talking about further expanding the plant and developing a direct railway link to make shipping easier, the Financieele Dagblad said.
