Two production shifts will be added to the workweek of the BMW plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. What this means, of course, is that 700 additional workers will be required. Previous BMW workers will be prioritized for employment. While the first shift would be filled immediately, the second will only be added in November.

The reason for the increase in production is the 3.6% sales increase in September, which is a remarkable record compared to an industry decrease of 26%. In a press release, Josef Kerscher, president of BMW Manufacturing, said that the company continues to guarantee the plant's flexibility to efficiently respond to market demand. Specifically, BMW stated that for it to meet customer demand, its plant must maintain the ability to adjust shifts and staffing levels as needed. Since 1994, the Spartanburg, S.C. plant has produced more than 1.5 million vehicles. The plant has been the sole global provider of the X5, X6, and Z4 models. It has also provided partial production of the X3 and Z3.
