Bosch Rexroth Corporation has announced it will expand its existing hydraulics manufacturing operations in Greenville County, SC, with an $80 million investment. The project will add a new building and land to the company's Fountain Inn operations, and is expected to create 160 jobs over the next five years.

The expanded manufacturing campus will become Bosch Rexroth's primary facility for mobile hydraulics and its largest manufacturing facility in the U.S., said Bosch's Berend Bracht, regional president - Americas. The company purchased the former GlaxoSmithKline building near its current facility to establish a larger manufacturing campus and allow for future growth.

Under the brand name of Rexroth it supplies over 500,000 customers with solutions for driving, controlling and moving machinery used in industrial and factory automation as well as mobile applications.

The state's Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved Bosch for job development credits which will be available when hiring targets are met. South Carolina's technical college system will provide pre-employment training.
