Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, is expanding its existing Anderson County operations. To accommodate the company’s continued growth, Bosch is investing an additional $45 million.
Employing approximately 402,000 associates worldwide, Bosch is a leading Internet of Things company that offers innovative solutions for smart homes, smart cities, connected mobility and connected manufacturing. Its strategic objective is to deliver innovations for a connected life. With its sales and service partners, Bosch’s global manufacturing, engineering and sales network covers nearly every country in the world.
Located at 4421 S.C. Highway 81 in Anderson, S.C., the company’s Anderson County expansion will include new manufacturing capabilities to support the portfolio of its Mobility Solutions business sector in North America. Bosch is purchasing an adjacent property previously occupied by a Bosch joint venture.
“We have a rich history in South Carolina, and this expansion helps us to further serve our North American customers from the strong base we’ve built in the state. We are very proud of another milestone in our relationship with Anderson County and the state of South Carolina,” said Bosch in North America President Mike Mansuetti.
The Bosch Anderson facility was founded in 1985 to produce fuel rails and has added production capabilities from a number of Bosch divisions that span many areas of the vehicle – including Powertrain Solutions, Automotive Electronics and Car Multimedia. The facility currently employs more than 1,200 associates. More information about open positions at the Anderson facility and other Bosch locations is available at www.bosch.us/careers.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project. A $100,000 Set Aside grant was also awarded to Anderson County to assist with the costs of site preparation and building construction.
Anderson County Council Chairman Tommy Dunn said, “Bosch continues to strengthen its Anderson operations and Anderson County appreciates Bosch’s continued investment and the economic impact on our community and the Upstate.”
County Councilman Tom Allen of District Four said, “Anderson County is pleased to experience another growth with one of our community’s longstanding economic partners. I am delighted to have Bosch as a corporate neighbor in the community.”
The expansion also received statewide notice. SC Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said, “Bosch has been a longtime member of Team South Carolina, and we’re excited to see them once again expand their operations in Anderson County. Our existing industries continue to be a major driver of our economy, and I’m excited to see what the future has in store for Bosch in South Carolina.”
