BMW South Carolina Plant Becomes Largest Production Site in Past 25 Years

The BMW Group has been doing business in the U.S. market for a quarter-century. Now it is celebrating the fact that the Spartanburg, SC plant has become the largest production location within the past 25 years.

The plan to build the plant was announced in 1992, but continuous expansion and extensive additions and the decision to build the BMW X models in Spartanburg have made the plant the largest manufacturing location in the BMW Group production network within the past 25 years.

BMW AG's Chairman of the Board of Management, Harald Krüger, said at the ceremony that the BMW Group’s success in the U.S. would not have been possible without the support of the people and elected officials in South Carolina and the surrounding region.

"Our relationship with South Carolina has been built upon decades of professionalism, mutual trust and respect – and goes far beyond just building great cars," Krüger said.

So far BMW has invested eight billion dollars in the production site and made about 3.9 million cars since going live in 1994. Krüger also said that from 2018 to 2021 the brand will invest 600 million dollars in future versions of the BMW X models in manufacturing infrastructure.
