BMW supplier to add jobs in Union County

GREENVILLE -- BMW supplier LSP Automotive Systems LLC will add 61 jobs and spend $45 million expanding its plant in Union County. The Greenville News reported Thursday that LSP already employs about 160 at its 230,000-square-foot plant, which makes metal stampings for the X6 sports-activity coupe that BMW Manufacturing Co. assembles in Greer. Stanley Vanderford, executive director of the Union County Development Board, said LSP would add 125,000 square feet of space and install a second assembly line at its plant, located along U.S. 176 between Union and Spartanburg. LSP is the second BMW supplier to announce an expansion in little more than a month. In September, Lear Corp. said it would add 140 jobs and build a second factory in Greer to make seat components for BMW Manufacturing. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
