South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley joined Bosch Rexroth Americas President Berend Bracht and executives from Robert Bosch LLC to formally mark the start of production at the company's newly expanded hydraulics manufacturing campus in Fountain Inn.

Headquartered in Charlotte, Bosch Rexroth is investing $80 million over five years to expand production in the new campus and convert an existing 260,000-square-foot industrial warehouse into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that will initially produce the Rexroth A10VO hydraulic pump. The pump is used in a variety of applications, including mobile construction and agricultural machinery, mining, materials handling, and heavy industries, such as steel and automotive production.

With the addition of the new building, Bosch Rexroth has doubled its production capabilities at the location, making the Fountain Inn campus its largest hydraulics manufacturing site in the Americas.

“The Bosch investment for expanded production in Fountain Inn increases our ability to serve the needs of our local and regional customers,” said Bracht.

“We truly value the commitment Bosch has made to be a part of our state's business community, and we are excited to see them invest in South Carolina,” she said. “We celebrate the 160 new jobs the company will create with this campus and look forward to its continued success.”
