BMW - Allach, Germany

Target Category: Industry - Aviation
In 1936, Flugmotorenfabrik Allach GmbH, the shadow BMW plant, was founded. It was initially secretly subsidized by the government. It became the largest aircraft tenpin factory in Germany. Over 90% of the 17,000 workers were foreign slave labor. At the end of the war, the Allach plant is virtually unharmed. In October 1945 the US military orders the dismantling of the plant. All machinery is removed and shipped as reparations all over the world. US control of the Allach plant lasts until 1955.
