Dr. Robert Engelhorn is the new president and CEO of BMW Manufacturing in Greer. In a private handover ceremony at the BMW Zentrum on Wednesday, Engelhorn took over the plant leadership from Knudt Flor, who has retired from the company.

“Plant Spartanburg has been a critical part of BMW’s global production network for decades, and the plant’s impact is far reaching,” said Engelhorn. “Their performance – both in quality and production – is impressive, and I am excited to lead this extraordinary team.”

Engelhorn joined the BMW Group in 2011 and occupied various positions at the Munich and Regensburg plants in Germany. In 2016, he moved to the BMW Brilliance Automotive (BBA) joint venture in China, where he led the Technology and Production division for the Dadong and Tiexi plants. In 2018, Engelhorn took over as director for BMW Group Plant Munich, where he prepared the plant for production of the all-electric BMW i4.

“Robert is the perfect match for Plant Spartanburg. He combines great international experience and broad technical expertise, especially for the manufacturing of electrified cars,” said Dr. Milan Nedeljkovic, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Production. “I’m sure he will successfully steer this plant into its great future.”

Flor is retiring after 33 years at the BMW Group and nearly five years as president and CEO at BMW Group Plant Spartanburg located in Greer. He is the second-longest serving president of the Spartanburg plant.
