The BMW plant near Spartanburg in South Carolina, USA, began producing BMW automobiles for the world market in 1994. Today, it manufactures the BMW X3 and X5 Sports Activity Vehicle and the X6 Sports Activity Coupé and their variants. In January 2012 the two millionth vehicle was produced.
Due to the success of these automobiles, over the years, the Spartanburg plant has had to be substantially enlarged. Its output has expanded by adding additional shifts, introducing flexible working hour models, and hiring new employees. Today, the plant runs multiple shift models each week.
In 2011, over 7,000 team members manufactured 276,065 vehicles.
Over 192,000 vehicles were exported in 2011 from the South Carolina plant and made it the leading U.S. automotive exporter.
