Spartanburg Plant is Now BMW's Largest Production Facility

On June 23, 1992, the BMW Group revealed plans to build a United States plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. In the 25 years since, the plant has undertaken regular additions and expansions, with the company's recent choice to produce the BMW X model vehicles at the location making it the largest manufacturing facility in BMW Group's production network.

Since 1992, BMW has invested $8 billion into the Spartanburg facility with the plant producing 3.9 million vehicles since 1994. Between 2018 and 2021, the company is slated to invest $600 million more into the facility and add another 1,000 employees to the 9,000 currently working at the facility. Once this round of expansion is finished, the plant will boast a maximum production capacity of 450,000 vehicles, 70 percent of which will be exported around the world.

At BMW of Northwest Arkansas, we're eagerly anticipating the arrival of the new BMW X3 this fall.
