BMW Jobs in 2018

600 Million Dollar Investment
The jobs are part of a 600 million dollar investment in our Spartanburg facility in South Carolina. This factory is where BMW builds the X3, X4, X5, and X6 models. Soon BMW will be producing the X7 there as well. The Spartanburg plant is the only production site for these vehicles. To date, BMW has produced over 2 million vehicles and has invested over $5 billion in South Carolina. BMW has been, and continues to be the ultimate community partner and a driving economic force in South Carolina.

Record Breaking Production
For the third consecutive year, BMW Manufacturing recorded its largest annual production, producing 411,171 X models during 2016. This production record confirms the South Carolina plant will remain the largest plant by volume in the BMW Group global production network. In addition, the plant exported 287,700 vehicles last year - 70 percent of its total production. 2016 marked the second time the South Carolina plant has topped 400,000 units. In 2015, production totaled 400,904 units.
