Bosch Rexroth has committed more than $400,000 worth of training equipment to Greenville Technical College, in addition to a $20,000 Community Fund grant, to support the creation of a mobile hydraulic lab and college lab curriculum.

Through donations such as this, Bosch assists educational institutions in developing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills of the next generation.

“Finding technically skilled associates has become one of the most pressing issues in our business, especially as we expand to meet the needs of our customers,” said Berend Bracht, president and CEO of Bosch Rexroth Americas. “Greenville Technical College has worked with us closely to establish programs that address this critical need. The top-of-the-line training equipment is a further, significant step in making the training center even better. We are eager to see how the lab develops, and look forward to a continued close partnership with Greenville Tech.”

The lab will serve as a tool for Greenville Tech students and as a training center for Bosch customers and associates. Bosch is also supplying textbooks, online training and manuals for teachers and students.

The new facility, able to accommodate 18 people, will be used for hydraulic technology training, hydraulic performance testing and industry research. The lab will be housed at the Buck Mickel Center on campus.
