BMW US Manufacturing – Tochtergesellschaft von BMW
BMW US Manufacturing Company, LLC is one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the United States. The company is a subsidiary of the BMW AG and produces at its South Carolina, Spartanburg location. At present, the BMW X3, X4, X5, X6 and X7 models are manufactured at the plant. The more than 11,000 employees produce around 1500 vehicles per day.
The company has been producing vehicles since July 1994. The first model was the BMW 3181, which rolled off the production line on 8 September 1994. In 2020, the production of the five millionth BMW was celebrated at the plant. The big anniversary was celebrated with a BMW X5 M Competition in Toronto Red Metallic, which complements the plant’s collection of anniversary vehicles.
The significance of the BMW Spartanburg plant for the US market
The X models are the heart of the production in Spartanburg, because they pay off on the American market: More than half of all BMWs sold in the USA are manufactured at the Spartanburg plant. But Spartanburg’s important position has another reason: The plant is responsible for the fact that the BMW Group has been able to call itself the largest American car exporter for six years now. BMW has long overtaken all other manufacturers in the country: Almost 70% of the vehicles produced between 2010-2019 were built for customers outside the United States.
