Bosch Rexroth opens hydraulics manufacturing campus

By |  April 1, 2013

Bosch Rexroth formally marked the start of production at its newly expanded hydraulics manufacturing campus March 20 in Fountain Inn, S.C., with a special event that included Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.). Haley joined Bosch Rexroth Americas President Berend Bracht and executives from Robert Bosch LLC for the grand opening.

Bosch Rexroth is investing $80 million over five years to expand production in the new campus and convert an existing 260,000-sq.-ft. industrial warehouse into a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that will initially produce the Rexroth A10VO hydraulic pump.

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.

To date, five assembly lines and multiple state-of-the-art machining centers have been installed for the production of the A10VO, along with one line for vane motor assembly.
