The BMW US Manufacturing Company in Spartanburg, South Carolina 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 X3, X4, X5, and X6 production site in the world. Hence, all models of these vehicles exported worldwide originate from BMW Spartanburg.
The $2.2 billion plant, which employs 10,000, is one of the company’s global five-plant production network.
BMW Manufacturing Co. is a BMW Group company. 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.
