KRIFTEL, 1 August 2015. The Chinese authorities granted KOKINETICS GmbH a business licence for opening a subsidiary in China and a production facility in Shenyang this week. The first series-production project to be industrialised in the Shenyang factory is the rear-seat structure of the long version of the BMW 5 Series (G38). The G38 project is based on the concept of the BMW 7 Series, which was also developed by KOKINETICS. The BMW 7 Series has been produced in the Czech plant of KOKINETICS in Kamenice nad Lipou since July 2015. Also in Kamenice nad Lipou, production of the entire rear-seat structure of the global BMW 35up platform for different variants of the BMW 1, 3 and 5 Series will begin in the spring of 2016.

The official opening of the production facility in Shenyang will take place on 1 March 2016.
