BMW Manufacturing Co. Spartanburg is BMW's only US production facility. It was built to serve the demand of BMW automobiles directly in the US. Due to the structure of BMW's production plan, however, the Spartanburg plant does not actually assemble all BMW vehicles sold in the US market; instead, the plant serves as the only X5, X6, and Z4 production site in the world. Hence, all models of these vehicles exported worldwide originate from BMW Spartanburg.
The now $2.2 billion investment solidly positions BMW Manufacturing as an integral part in the company’s five-plant production network. Unlike many other automobile factories, all of the manufacturing processes in the South Carolina facility are under one roof, creating an open communications environment that enhances the focus on quality.
BMW Manufacturing Co. is a BMW Group company. Its website address is www.bmwusfactory.com. In addition to the South Carolina manufacturing facility, BMW's North American companies include sale, marketing, design and financial services operations in the United States, Mexico and Canada, as well as throughout Latin America.
