DSI Security Services is pleased to announce that it has been selected as the contract security provider for BMW in the United States. BMW is known around the globe as the premiere luxury vehicle for its commitment to uncompromising quality and delivering to the customer the “Ultimate Driving Machine.” BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke) was founded in 1916 as an aircraft engine company that expanded production to motorcycles and eventually cars. Today BMW also owns Mini and Rolls-Royce.
BMW’s North America Corporate Headquarters is located in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. The BMW U.S. Manufacturing Company, also known as BMW Plant Spartanburg, is a vehicle assembly facility located in Greer, SC; it is BMW‘s only assembly plant in the U.S. The BMW Manufacturing Company employs more than 9,000 people in South Carolina to produce the X3 and X5 Sports Activity Vehicle and the X4 and X6 Sports Activity Coupe at its 1,150-acre, 6-million-plus square-foot campus. In addition to these locations, DSI will also be providing security services to other BMW non-production facilities across the United States. The new project will involve over 200 DSI security officers across the country.
DSI Chairman of the Board Alan Clark announced this historic partnership by emphasizing the value that BMW adds to the DSI Security customer base. Mr. Clark stated, “We are very proud of our association with BMW, and we are extremely blessed to have this opportunity to provide our services to such a prestigious brand. We look forward to continuing to earn their trust and confidence each day as we strive to deliver the most effective security solutions possible.”
DSI was started in Dothan, AL in 1969 by then Sheriff A.B. Clark. The company is still family-owned and operated by Alan Clark (A.B.’s son) and his wife Marsha Clark. Today, with more than 3,000 Security personnel spread throughout the United States, DSI continues its long history of providing uniformed officers, technology solutions, and consulting services to manufacturing facilities and a wide range of other industries.
