- Apr 23, 2015
In an effort to better serve BMW and MINI car dealerships across Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, BMW Group recently broke ground on a new vehicle distribution center in Galveston, Texas.
According to a press release, the facility will be developed on a 20-acre tract and will consist of two buildings totaling 44,000 square feet. Upon completion, the center will handle distribution and storage, as well as inspections, repairs, accessory installations, vehicle programming and maintenance.
“This project helps the port achieve its mission of being the economic engine for the city of Galveston and the local region. With this new vehicle processing center, we are confident that the activity level for the port will continue to increase, including the creation of new livable-wage jobs. We are pleased that our successful efforts to maintain existing world-class tenants and to attract additional ones continue,” said Port Director Michael Mierzwa.
The facility has been slated to open in early 2016 and will be able to process about 32,500 vehicles each year.
