1,000,000th bmer rolls off SC assembly line

While thinking of the auto industry may evoke pain in its rustbelt heartland, the same thoughts in the sunbelt seem to radiate with the warmth of the winter of '06. A blue Z4 roadster rolled off the line at BMW's Greer, SC plant earlier this week, the millionth vehicle assembled there. Opened in 1994, the operation has grown from 600 to 4,500 employees and has doubled its facility size. It was reported that all employees at the plant lined up to get one touch of the roadster as it made its way to the outside world.
