BMW's only U.S. manufacturing facility is located in Greer, SC, about 15 miles from downtown Greenville. The on-site Zentrum Museum, where Greenville hosted the Welcome Reception for the 1999 meeting, is closed for renovation. However, limited tours of the manufacturing plant are available and seeing this plant in action is definitely worthy of your time.
Tours are offered Monday through Friday. A tour takes about two hours and requires walking one mile.
Tours are scheduled two months in advance so call in early August. To schedule a tour, call Katie Smith at 888-868-7269, ext. 2, weekdays between 9:00 and 2:00.
