Magna International Inc. plans to build a new, state-of-the-art seat manufacturing facility in Spartanburg County, South Carolina where the seats are to be supplied to BMW Group.
Magna’s new seating plant is expected to be operational in June 2017 and could employ up to 480 people by 2020. The facility will feature dedicated assembly and sequencing lines to supply seats for various BMW models at the BMW Group’s nearby assembly plant.
Magna has three manufacturing locations and employs approximately 1,450 people in South Carolina. The new seating facility will be Magna’s fourth location in the state. This is a new chapter in the ongoing collaboration between Magna and the BMW Group, as it’s our first seating business award with this valued global customer said Mike Bisson, president of Magna Seating.
