BMW Manufacturing announced in GreerToday that Bernd Koenigsbruegge has been named the new Vice President for Painted Body. He replaces Heinz Brunner who has returned to Munich to oversee production of powertrain and chassis systems.
Koenigsbruegge served as vice president for the body shop in the Greer plant from 2004 to 2008 before moving to BMW’s plant in Regensburg, Germany.

Officials at Greer’s BMW Manufacturing Co. plant in Greer said today expansion work to the facility remains on schedule, as do plans to add 1,000 new jobs over the next two years.
The company is also on pace to add 300 jobs this year, said Sky Foster, BMW corporate communications manager. BMW hosted a small contingent of local media for a tour of the areas under construction this morning.
