Rolls-Royce Deutschland is a subsidiary of aircraft engine maker Rolls-Royce plc with facilities at Dahlewitz outside Berlin and at Oberursel near Frankfurt am Main. It was formerly BMW Rolls-Royce (BRR), a joint venture company between BMW and Rolls-Royce established in 1990 to produce the BR700 family of jet engines.

Rolls-Royce took full control of the company in 2000, renaming it Rolls-Royce Deutschland. As well as continuing to produce the Rolls-Royce BR700 family of turbofans, the subsidiary is also involved in the Europrop TP400 engine for the Airbus A400M military transport plane.

Rolls-Royce Deutschland has inherited responsibility for the Tay, Spey and IAE V2500 two shaft turbofans and the Dart turboprop from the parent company, allowing the Derby site to concentrate on its three shaft civil turbofans.
