*Dürr delivers three paint shops for BMW in China and Hungary as general

Bietigheim-Bissingen, December 6, 2019 - BMW uses Dürr to increase its
painting capacities in Asia and Europe. In Shenyang (China), Dürr is
erecting a new paint shop and expanding an existing one for the German OEM.
The orders for building the two facilities in China were booked in the
fourth quarter of 2019. In addition, it was agreed that Dürr would also
deliver the paint shop for BMW's new plant in the Hungarian city of

Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG, states: "The two orders from BMW in Shenyang
reinforce our position as market leader in China. The technological
equipment of the paint shops on order fulfills two criteria, which are
becoming increasingly important for our customers: sustainability and
flexibility in production."

BMW has been operating a Dürr paint shop in Shenyang-Dadong since 2016, and
its capacity is now being increased. In Shenyang-Tiexi, where BMW has been
using Dürr technology for its paint application since 2013, Dürr is building
another paint shop in a new production facility. In addition, BMW is already
planning a second extension phase and has agreed this future work with Dürr.
The paint shop in Debrecen is set to start production in summer 2023.

In these three plants, Dürr will install a total of 165 painting robots and
90 sealing robots for seam sealing. BMW is deploying sustainable technology:
the eco-friendly *Eco*DryScrubber (China) and *Eco*Dry X (Hungary) systems
will be used for the separation of excess paint, also known as overspray.
This reduces energy consumption in the paint booths by 60% as less fresh air
needs to be treated.
Dürr helps to make production more flexible through its new *Eco*ProFleet
automated guided vehicles for car bodies.
