BMW Manufacturing in Greer announced a change in leadership Wednesday.

Josef Kerscher, who since 2007 has been President of BMW Manufacturing Company in Spartanburg County, will become Managing Director of BMW Plant Dingolfing in Bavaria, Germany. 

Manfred Erlacher will take over Kerscher's position in South Carolina on November 1. Erlacher is currently Managing Director of BMW Plant Leipzig in Saxony, Germany. 

The BMW plant in Greer nearly tripled production under Kerscher's leadership.

The facility went from producing 105,000 vehicles in 2006 to more than 301,000 vehicles in 2012. 

The plant is currently completing a major $900 million investment expansion to increase production capacity to 350,000 vehicles per year and to prepare for the launch of the new X4 in 2014. 

The plant is the global manufacturing home for the BMW X5, X6 and X3.
