We have a long tradition of producing goods and services for the region and the rest of the world. We've been the center of the textile industry, produced more peaches than the entire state of Georgia and now we are home to a diverse collection of international companies, including BMW's only North American plant. Our food and music is known around the globe. And we're bringing new products to market all the time, like the nation's first non-profit bookstore along with coffee and beer that has a distinctive Spartanburg flavor. Meet the locals.
