U.S. Senator Tim Scott visited BMW’s manufacturing facility in Greer last week.

Scott met with the company’s management team, toured the plant and reviewed BMW’s expansion plans for the 4 million square foot campus. The company is investing $900 million to add 1.6 million square feet of production and logistics space and increase its production volume to 350,000 units annually by the end of 2014.

It was Scott’s first visit to the facility. Prior to joining the Senate, Scott represented South Carolina’s first district in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“We welcome the visit by Senator Scott and the opportunity to showcase BMW’s contribution to South Carolina’s workforce development and manufacturing competitiveness,” said Josef Kerscher, President of BMW Manufacturing.

“I want to thank Mr. Kerscher and the BMW team for welcoming me to their facility in Greer,” Senator Scott said. “It was great to meet so many hardworking folks on the plant floor – the men and women who help shape the backbone of our state’s economy. I know BMW will continue to thrive in the Upstate for years to come, and look forward to seeing their relationship with South Carolina continue to flourish.”
