What Bert Has To Say About Anderson Metro Area

Anderson is one of the three small cities making up the old metro area triumvirate of Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, SC, the center of South Carolina’s so-called “Upstate” economic region. Anderson is the westernmost of the three, which were split in 2005. The Upstate region, formerly known for textiles and agriculture, has become one of the more prosperous manufacturing regions in the South. Led by BMW, which is actually located in nearby Greer between Greenville and Spartanburg, and Michelin in Spartanburg, the area has gained prominence in manufacturing auto parts, plastics, chemicals, and other fabricated products and materials. Such small manufacturing has become Anderson’s mainstay.
