Economic Impact

BMW has tremendous economic impact across the entire state of South Carolina. BMW’s investment in South Carolina supports over 28,000 jobs, about 1.6% of the statewide workforce. BMW creates a multiplier effect of 4.3 meaning that for every one job created at the BMW plant over three additional jobs are created elsewhere in the economy.

BMW is committed to doing our part to protect and preserve the local resources upon which we all rely. Through corporate initiatives that encourage environmental awareness, financial support and conservation, we’re playing a leading role in sustaining the fragile eco-systems that make the Upstate community so unique. Our environmental responsibility is one we take seriously, in order to make sure the give and take between nature and business is a balanced one.
