Report: BMW and Volkswagen evacuate employees from Japan
Filed under: Etc., Japan, Safety, BMW, Volkswagen
The situation in Japan is still very tense and evolving on a moment-to-moment basis, and it will take years for the nation to fully recover from the earthquake and tsunami. In response to the still-dangerous developing situation, at least two European automakers who operate facilities there have decided to bring home some of their foreign nationals.
According to Automotive News Europe, BMW employs 750 people in Japan, and 50 or so of its German employees have returned to their home country. Volkswagen has around 600 workers located in Japan, and so far, 30 of the 40 German employees have left the disaster-stricken nation.
Will other automakers follow suit?
