BMW plans major expansion announcement at SC plant

Posted: Updated:

GREER, S.C. (AP) - BMW officials are preparing to announce an expansion of its South Carolina plant.

BMW Group Chairman Norbert Reithofer is joining Gov. Nikki Haley and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker at the automaker's plant in Greer for the Friday afternoon announcement.

The plant currently makes BMW's X-series vehicles, which are a mix of an SEV and a coupe. Workers have made more than 2 million vehicles since the plant opened 20 years ago.

BMW has about 7,000 workers at the Greer plant and an estimated 16,000 additional workers have jobs at the 50 or so plants that provide parts to the German automaker.
