ost people now know that the only manufacturing plant in the United States for BMW is in Spartanburg County, in the town of Greer. (Perhaps that’s why Carolinians feel a touch of pride and envy when one of those sporty little Zs whips past us in the fast lane.)

“When it comes to attracting European companies, no metro area in the past two years has been nearly as successful as Spartanburg,” says Expansion Management Magazine.

A by-product of living in a town friendly to international business is that its residents can enjoy the international restaurants that cater to the Europeans here.

More than 500 manufacturing firms call Spartanburg County home. They deal in textiles, food processing and packaging, metalworking and stamping, and of course, automotive and related industries, with names like Michelin, Siemens, Hoechst Celanese and others.

For the academically inclined, Spartanburg has six colleges: Wofford, Converse and Spartanburg Technical colleges, the Spartanburg Methodist College and University of South Carolina Upstate. The Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic draws students from all over the country.

The arts are well appreciated, with events ranging from art shows and the ballet to symphonies and theatre. The new Chapman Cultural Arts Center is in the heart of downtown. Spartanburg’s Morgan Square, in the center of the shopping and restaurant district, recently underwent a renovation and is the perfect destination to enjoy a concert, or to sit and take in the beautiful surroundings. Renaissance Park Project is a public/private partnership aimed at sparking the revitalization of the central business district; it includes a four-diamond Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.

Friendliness is the norm here. It’s a concept that thrives in this charming Southern town.
