MINI's Oxford plant readies for centenary celebrations
Aston Martin won't be the only automaker celebrating 100 years in 2013: MINI's Oxford plant will reach the milestone on March 28th.

The facility has employed tens of thousands of people and built more than 11 million cars over the past century, including Austin, Healey, MG, Wolseley, Riley, Austin, Mini, Vanden Plas, Princess, Triumph, Rover, Honda, Sterling, Morris and MINI models.

Today, Oxford produces the MINI hatchback, Convertible, Clubman, Clubvan, Roadster and Coupe -- 80% of which are exported to over 100 countries worldwide.

A centenary exhibition at the plant will incorporate stories and pictures from employees past and present.
