In January 1986, BMW Canada was founded and the headquarters established in Whitby, Ontario. By 1992, the company divided Canada into three regions to serve the customers and opened two new offices: one in Montreal and the other one in Vancouver. By 1995, BMW Canada further expanded its reach with new facilities in Richmond and Whitby. In 2009, this growth inspired BMW Canada to move its headquarters from Whitby to Richmond Hill, Ontario where it has been since.
BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, and it was born from the combination of 3 companies: in 1916, the Bayerische Flugzeug-Werke AG and Flugmaschinenfabrik Gustav Otto merged to form a business for the government called BFW. In 1917, another company called Rapp Motorenwerke became Bayerische Motoren Werke (BMW) GmBH which in turn became BMW AG. In 1922, BMW AG transferred its engine technology and brand name to BFW. So the original 1916 BFW formation is considered the birth of today's BMW. Currently, BMW Group sells BMW and MINI brand of cars worldwide.
