Magna Steyr aiming for full capacity utilisation at graz plant


With new orders from Jaguar Land Rover, BMW and Daimler, the medium-term vehicle production at the Magna plant in Graz is set to return to levels in excess of 200,000 per year.

The global automotive industry is booming and Magna Steyr is profiting from its successful track record dating back many years. The car manufacturers Jaguar Land Rover are moving part of their production from England to Austria; the reason given by Jaguar is that they are nearing capacity limits in the three plants in England. The first vehicles should roll off the conveyor belt from 2017.

In addition to the new cooperation with Jaguar Land Rover, the full order books at the Magna plant in Graz are also buoyed by a new agreement with BMW and an extension of the contract with Daimler to produce the Mercedes-Benz G Class until 2022.

Magna Steyr sees the new orders as a confirmation of its commitment to quality and as a mark of trust in its expertise as an automotive contract manufacturer. Furthermore, this will provide a strong boost to the 220 suppliers in the region.

Magna Steyr is a leading global automotive supplier, providing brand-independent engineering and manufacturing services and offering innovative solutions to fulfil a wide range of requirements: development services for systems and modules through to complete vehicles, flexible solutions in automotive contract manufacture from niche orders to high-volume production at world-class levels, as well as tank systems from steel, plastic and aluminium.
