Greer SC

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Southeast region of the United States, Greer, South Carolina is a vibrant city with rich history and a bright future. Greer is halfway between the major metropolitan areas of Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina. While it has “big city” amenities, Greer exudes southern charm and a welcoming feeling of home.

The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport just outside the city limits makes it easy to get to Greer from anywhere in the world. GSP runs more than 50 non-stop flights a day and has been named the Best Small Airport in North America. Brick-paved streets and a canopy of lights welcome visitors to Greer’s award-winning downtown lined with chic boutiques, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

Intentional planning, collaboration, and vision drive Greer’s downtown development. Trade Street has been the center of commerce since the 1800s when downtown merchants traded coffee, sugar, and dry goods for cotton. Trains still move products through the downtown core called Greer Station, a National Historic District revitalized by a shared vision of the future.

Greer’s pro-business climate, location, and logistics assets make it fertile ground for companies seeking to access global markets. Innovators from around the world have planted roots here. At least 35 foreign-owned companies are currently doing in Greer. Germany-based BMW Manufacturing recently invested about $125 million to build a vehicle accessory center and a cutting-edge logistics facility inside the city.

Greer’s population is estimated at 50,000, but that number is expected to soar to 75,000 in the next five years. Much of the growth comes from people who move here from around the world to work for global innovators like BMW. The city celebrates this beautiful mix of cultures every spring with the Greer Goes Global International Festival.
