There are huge changes going on in the South – and that's part of the reason that some social conservatives from that region have become so incredibly strident in their efforts to conserve what they see as the way things were. U.S. Census Briefs – Population Distribution and Change: 2000 to 2010, That's a lot of new people – and that's an extension of trends from previous decades. The politics will be shifting as new people keep coming there. We can also look at commerce and trade activity in the U.S. Per the American Association of Port Authorities, here's the ,top ten U.S. seaports for 2012 ranked by total trade value, (in millions of dollars): Los Angeles/Long Beach, CA $399,656 Houston-Galveston, TX $249,840 New York City, NY $210,568 New Orleans, LA $155,147 Seattle, WA $95,638 Savannah, GA $92,990 San Francisco, CA $69,888 Charleston, SC $63,645 Norfolk, VA $63,247 Baltimore, MD $53,960 Here's the list when you rank those ports by metric tonnage (listed here in thousands of tons): New Orleans, LA 255,358 Houston-Galveston, TX 247,337 Los Angeles/Long Beach, CA 123,073 New York City, NY 80,802 Norfolk, VA 64,279 Port Arthur, TX 64,168 Mobile, AL 52,050 San Francisco, CA 49,490 Philadelphia, PA 48,175 Seattle, WA 47,686 That's a staggering amount of cargo and commerce along the I-10 corridor from Southern California through to Georgia. The dominance of the South has a lot to do with both the explosion of Pacific trade; the completion of the ,Panama Canal expansion project, in 2015 will accelerate it even more. Also notable is Warren Buffet's strategic investment in railroads (specifically the acquisition of BNSF); along with that, he has been putting money into Southern rail infrastructure to boost cargo capacity. How about auto manufacturing? ,Here are America's 15 busiest auto plants for 2011:, Ford (Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, MO) - 460,338 Ford (Dearborn Truck Plant, Dearborn, MI) - 342,162 Hyundai (Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Plant, Montgomery, AL) - 342,162 Nissan (Nissan North America, Smyrna, TN) - 333,392 Toyota (Georgetown, KY) - 315,889 General Motors, (Fort Wayne, Roanoke, IN) - 307,454 Honda, (Marysville Auto Plant, Marysville, OH) - 285,258 Kia,/Hyundai - (Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, West Point, GA) - 282,316 General Motors - (Lordstown Complex, Warren, OH) - 279,674 General Motors - (Fairfax Assembly Plant, Kansas City, KS) - 279,250 General Motors - (Lansing Delta Township, Lansing, MI) - 277,277 BMW, (BMW Manufacturing Co., Spartanburg, SC) - 277,074 General Motors (Arlington, TX) - 269,624 Honda, - (Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, Lincoln, AL) - 264,324 Ford - (Chicago Assembly Plant, Chicago) - 262,730 I don't know about the Ford and GM plants, but all of the foreign plants are new – and they're predominantly being built n the South. It's also worth being aware that Boeing has been relocating operations away from Seattle more and more to Missouri and South Carolina. Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport is the busiest airport in the United States. Charlotte, North Carolina is the second largest U.S. financial center (behind New York) when ranked by assets. Austin, Texas is a major technology hub and the Dallas/Ft.Worth/Arlington Metroplex is rather stunning in terms of the global companies that have decided to set themselves up there. The South – at long last – is industrializing. It's going to continue to be a painful and noisy transition for awhile yet, and that's hard for the rest of the country to understand since a lot of the fundamental changes happened decades ago elsewhere. The "Old South" is holding on and screaming but the "New South" is a big part of America's future.
No, this is not true. As far as I know, the whole BMW group made some 2.5 million cars in 2015, and just over 2 million of them were true BMWs. Divided by 365, this makes an overall production output of almost 5.500 cars per day. Maybe you are referring to the BMW plant in Dingolfing, which published a figure of 376,000 cars per year in 2017, which is just slightly more than 1.000 per day. Plant Dingolfing Dingolfing is the largest BMW production site in Europe. However, the BMW factory in Spartanburg/SC is even bigger.
A Few Reasons Why Greeville, SC is Nationally Known Greenville, SC is located on US highway I-85, midway between Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC. I-85 is a major corridor from the southeast to the northeastern USA. It's a 2.5 hour drive to ATL and 1.5 hour drive to Charlotte, NC from Greenville, SC. Spartanburg, SC is 30 minutes up I-85 North. Hendersonville and Asheville, NC are respectively 45 and 60 minutes up US25 North out of GVL, SC. In addition, Greenville, SC is home to BMW's only North American manufacturing facility and Michelin Tire Corporations US 1 tire manufacturing plant. Greenville, SC is also home to Bob Jones University, Furman University and Greenville Technical College. Clemson University is 1 hour away down I-85 South and Clemson's iCar research facility is in Greenville, SC. The city of Greenville, SC has a bustling economy fueled by residents of single family condo/apartments that live and work in the city. They have numerous specialty shops, restaurants, and a healthy financial district in walking distance. The BMW Pro-AM Golf Event is held Annually at the Verdae Greens Golf Course on I-85 in GVL Some of Greenville, SC's major attractions are listed below. The Peace Center For The Performing Arts:: Home Bon Secours Wellness Arena ,GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail - Greenville Rec, The Official Site of The Greenville Drive | greenvilledrive.com Homepage, AAA Baseball Team (Boston Red Sox) Fall for Greenville, A Taste of Our Town, Outdoor Fall festival Downtown Greenville (Food, entertainment) ,The Greek Festival , ,Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral There are many more things that contribute to GVL, SC being nationally known but many visitors to GVL still find it a well kept secret.
Back in the 1970’s, the Russian IL-62M operating at JFK, in New York. That was the premier long distance jetliner the Russians built. The plane had four engines in back, and I remember thinking what in the hell is that. Aeroflot and LOT (Polish Airways) were the main operators. I’ve since learned they operated out of LAX as well, so it’s safe to assume they were operating out of a lot of international airports in the United States. I thought it was a cool looking aircraft. Because the plane was so tail heavy, they’d lower a leg at the rear of the plane to keep it from tipping backwards. I live near the BMW Plant in Spartanburg, SC, and since the plant came into existence, the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) has greatly expanded their cargo terminal. BMW sometimes announces when these big boys, the Antonov heavy lift cargo planes, will land since they’ve become a tourist attraction. At least some are operated by a European consortium that sprang up after the breakup of the Soviet Union.
Generally twice US averages - entry level line workers at BMW's SC plant earn around $15/hr, similar to US Auto's entry level wages. Comparable workers in Germany would earn $30-35hr.
BMW Brillance CHINA PLANTS Werk Dadong/Shenyang, China" The BMW SC Spartanburg plant exported more than 70% of its total production volume of 371,284 units last year to 123 countries. BMW Mexico has a new production capacity of 450,000 mostly for export to 123 countries BMW SC Spartanburg plant exports will be reduced by over 50% due to the latest 25% steel duties applicable to Canada & Mexico steel that supplied steel to most of the USA car manufacturing facilities in USA. BMW -Brillance CHINA BMW BRILLANCE CHINA 2,018 BEIJING AUTO SHOW BMW will export iX1 & iX3 electric SUV to Europe, U.S. from China 2018 BEIJING AUTO SHOW BMW will export iX3 electric SUV to Europe, U.S. from China Yes, BMW - Brillance China manufactures the i X1 and now i X3 for 2019. BMW has halted all manufacturing of the X3 in Spartanburg SC USA. Trump trade war dispute has since some time concerned BMW & Mercedes now having new plants in Mexico. In the same week that things became heated in the trade war between the US and China, BMW SA began production of the new X3 at its plant in Rosslyn near Pretoria, South Africa that supplies right hand wheel cars & SUV. Its German parent has already halted all X3 production at its plant in Spartanburg in the US, but a trade war will undoubtedly affect exports of other X models from the South Carolina facility World Wide as the latest BMW Mexico plant starts production of the 2019 / X3 with a new capacity of 450,000- cars & SUV per year 90% FOR EXPORT. BMW CHINA MOTOR DIVISION IS MANUFACTURING THE MAJORITY OF THE ENGINES FOR ALL OTHER PLANTS. BMW’s choice of China as the sole initial production site for its first electric SUV also shows the shifting focus of the industry. The iX3 will further help the Munich-based company, which already manufactures a plug-in hybrid version of its X1 SUV in China, meet tightening emissions rules in the world’s biggest electric-vehicle market. “Carmakers have to have electric-vehicle production in China in any case,” said Mark Fulthorpe, also at IHS. “China has been getting more consideration for export, even if that means sharing profits with joint-venture partners.” The iX3, which will be able to travel 400 kilometers (250 miles) on a fully charged battery, can be exported after the BMW partnership gained a license last year to ship it outside China. The model will enter the fast-growing premium electric-SUV segment after Jaguar’s I-Pace crossover and Audi’s Q6 E-Tron, which are scheduled for initial deliveries later this year, and the Mercedes-Benz EQ C crossover coming out in 2019. The iX3 project makes BMW the first major luxury-car maker to ship high-tech vehicles from China, in a sign consumers no longer equate the country with cheap products. It positions the Shenyang site to supply SUVs to the U.S., the second-biggest market for BMW, even with the question of higher American tariffs against Chinese-made goods still up in the air. The government’s Made in China 2025 development drive is giving foreign automakers more confidence their local joint-venture factories have the technology suitable for exports. BMW’s only fully battery-powered model is the i3 city car, introduced in 2013. An electric model from the Mini small-car brand will enter showrooms next year. The iX3, which will be based on the existing X3 SUV to save costs, is part of BMW’s strategy to roll out at least 12 all-electric cars by 2025. The automaker is under pressure to contain ballooning development costs that will hit about 7 billion euros ($8.7 billion) this year, an increase of some 15 percent on top of an 18 percent jump in 2017. Unlike bigger rivals like Volkswagen Group, which comprises 12 vehicle brands, BMW has limited options to spread technology costs between its namesake badge and Mini. Placing the iX3 in China will put the car at the heart of a market that Bloomberg New Energy Finance estimates accounted for 49 percent of the 1.1 million electric vehicles sold globally last year. “As long as the vehicle is built properly, and BMW will make sure of that, it doesn’t matter too much to consumers where the car comes from,” said Tim Urquhart, an automotive analyst at market researcher IHS Markit. “This will see a low-volume vehicle being made at a low-cost site.” WELCOME TO THE BMW GROUP, MEXICO. Cap 450,000 2019 / X3 Manufacturing new plant for Exports to North / Central /South America Caribbean Market and the 123 countries world wide market. BMW Group welcomes the site of San Luis Potosí Mexico within the BMW Group production network. A new plant is built here with planned production start in 2019. BMW has stick with the plans to open a new factory in Mexico in 2019 despite warnings from President-elect Donald Trump that he will slap a border tax on cars imported from the country. The German automaker's head of sales and marketing, Ian Robertson, told Richard Quest of CNN that BMW is committed to the factory in Mexico. Robertson explained that the company needs to expand manufacturing beyond its U.S. factory in Spartanburg, South Carolina, already the biggest BMW plant in the world. "We need additional capacity, so we have chosen to build a plant in Mexico," he said. The Spartanburg plant produces up to 450,000 cars per year, he said. "In a global setup, this is normal business," he said. "At the end of the day, our commitment to the U.S. is strong." Trump has publicly threatened automakers with a tariff on Mexican-made cars that are sold in the U.S. In recent weeks, he has specifically called out Ford (,F,), GM (,GM,) and Toyota (,TM,). In a statement, the BMW Group said: "Our overall position on this issue is we stand for free trade worldwide: our company has a global production network and a global sales market. We also take advantage of purchasing markets around the world, without any 25% new duties from the USA Government. "Barrier-free access to markets is therefore a key factor not only for our business model, but also for growth, welfare and employment throughout the global economy. NAFTA Free trade has also made the success story of the BMW Group in the US possible. Therefore, in our opinion, a further escalation of the trade conflict between the US and China would be harmful for all stakeholders. "The Spartanburg plant exported more than 70% of its total production volume of 371,284 units last year to 123 countries. Around a quarter of the BMW X vehicles manufactured in 2017 in Plant Spartanburg were exported to China. This makes China the number one export destination for the X models produced in Spartanburg, followed by Germany. According to the US department of commerce, the BMW plant in Spartanburg is the largest vehicle exporter from the US in terms of value." When it comes to the X3 however, BMW is moving much of the production for China to its new plant in that country. Reports last week stated that BMW SA would benefit from the trade dispute, however this was quickly refuted by spokespeople at BMW SA who advised that as well as supplying the South African market, the company would be the main supplier of X3 models to Europe. BMW SA ( South Africa )will not benefit from a trade war The manufacturer has begun production of the X3 at its plant in South Africa while internationally it is dealing with the crisis in the US-China trade dispute BMW Group Plant Araquari, Brazil. In December 2013, the BMW Group hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for a new plant in Araquari (State of Santa Catarina) in Southern Brazil. The new plant in Brazil that went on stream in October 2014 is a crucial element in the BMW Group’s international production network, contributing significantly to the BMW Group’s profitable and globally balanced growth. The production infrastructure comprises the technologies body shop, paint shop and assembly. At present, the product range of the Brazilian plant comprises the MINI Countryman, diverse models of BMW 1 Series, BMW 3 Series and BMW X models. BMW Brilliance Automotive Plants Shenyang, China (joint venture). BMW cars have been rolling off the assembly line at the Shenyang site in Northeast China since 2004. Plant Shenyang is operated by a joint venture with Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Limited and solely produces vehicles for the Chinese market. The production site in Shenyang comprises the Dadong plant in Northeast Shenyang, which makes the BMW 5 Series long-wheelbase version, and the Tiexi plant in West Shenyang in the Chinese province of Liaoning, which went on-stream in 2012 and produces the BMW X1, BMW 3 Series long-wheelbase version, BMW 3 Series Sedan and ZINORO cars. Another part of the Shenyang production site is a stand-alone engine plant that supplies both vehicle plants, Dadong and Tiexi, with the powertrains for the BMW vehicles made there. The joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive has invested a total of one billion euros in building the Tiexi plant and in expanding Dadong. 12 APRIL 2018 - MOTOR NEWS REPORTER The first BMW X3 built in South Africa rolls off the company’s production line in front of employees. In 2015, BMW announced a R6bn investment in SA to prepare the plant for the X3 production which has replaced that of the 3 Series sedan. Demand for its X-derivative models has grown to more than 30% of worldwide sales since the launch of the first X5 in 1999. BMW Group Plant Rosslyn was assigned production of the new X3 on the basis demand exceeds capacity of the group’s plant in Spartanburg. Rosslyn was the first plant built by the BMW Group outside of Germany. The plant built the 3 Series for 35 years, manufacturing 1,191,604 units during the period and increasing production with every model. Current maximum capacity at the plant is 76,000 units a year, mostly right hand drive cars. "The allocation of production of such a crucial model to our plant is about as big a vote of confidence as it gets," says Tim Abbott, CEO of BMW Group SA and sub-Saharan Africa. "Demand for the X3 globally is powerful, and ramping up on time and to the right standards is vital to its success. I have full confidence in our associates and plant management at Rosslyn. This is the team that won the coveted JD Power Platinum award in 2015, showing that a South African plant can lead the world in terms of quality." The company says its investments in SA are made in terms of the Automotive Production and Development Plan, which expires in 2020. Discussions about a post-2020 plan are ongoing and BMW says a plan is crucial for the long-term outlook, as well as the stability of the automotive sector and the company’s commitment to the country. Assembly takes hundreds of individual parts and creates BMW high-performance engines to customer specifications. State-of-the-art production technologies are perfectly complemented by the skills and know-how of trained assembly workers. Engine assembly starts with putting the basic engine .together. The core parts are assembled along with other components to create the engine block. The engine is then completed step by step, resulting in an end-product that meets the highest quality standards. Engines built to customer specifications. Maximum customer orientation requires a high degree of flexibility. Hundreds of different engine variants pass through our plant’s assembly lines. Our employees must therefore master a high level of complexity and diversity, since engines are not assigned to customer orders until shortly before delivery. Simply premium. Every finished engine, without exception, undergoes a computer-monitored functional test, known as a “cold test”. This procedure is particularly environmentally-friendly, since it no longer requires starting the engine. After passing this test and final quality inspections, the engines are sent to the vehicle plants for the so-called “marriage”, where engine, chassis and body are united. Prior to this, individual engines are randomly tested under extreme stress over an extended period in a dynamic audit.

Why not? 1) Whatever happened to the free market. Create detailed specifics then take the best offer by a reputable party. If the party is a little inexperienced, require a completion bond and perhaps put some of the payments in escrow until completion is satisfactory. 2) My thinking today is jaundiced for a reason. I got up early to do some outreach at Buffalo, WV High School in Putnam County. On my way to and from counseling high school students on their careers, I drove past the Toyota Plant which is one of the largest employers in the county. In this distressed county, workers happily clock in clock out and cash their generous paychecks. they do not care where their employer's headquarters is located. They care about taking care of their families and getting free training at the community college. 3) I am sure the good people of Spartanburg, SC feel the same way about the BMW plant. Likewise the good people of Chattanooga, TN feel the same way about the Volkswagen plant. Bottom line: why should working with a Chinese contractor or employer be any different. The only only color which should count is green. Thanks for the A2A @Paul
Like Brazil and the USSR in the 70s, the foreign manufacturers only assemble cars here. The BMW SUVs that are assembled in SC plants are “manufactured”with foreign sourced drivetrains. The hard work is done elsewhere. The big three are moving towards the same paradigm. Your US made vehicle most likely has a Mexican or Chinese built drivetrain. Even if a engine or transmission is assembled here, the parts are frequently made elsewhere. The USMCA has helped level the playing field. Content and worker pay requirements make the US more competitive in the manufacturing arena. Thank God that someone is looking out for our manufacturing capabilities!
This question contains a lie. The Spartansburg, SC plant is now BMWs largest. Far from putting American workers out of work, they are EXPANDING production. We understand that you hate Trump. I’m not too found of him, myself. But lying just hurts your credibility.
