Robert Bosch LLC, an auto supplier, is investing $125 million and creating 300 jobs in Dorchester County, South Carolina. The company will invest in diesel and gasoline fuel injectors, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability controls.
"We are very pleased to announce this investment which is designed to help us continue to strengthen our business at our plant in Dorchester County," said Gene Oswalt, Bosch vice president and commercial plant manager. "Working with our colleagues from the state, the county and the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, we have been able to develop a plan through which we can invest in our facility and associates, strengthen our business and support Bosch's global focus on environmental sustainability."
The company will implement wastewater retrieval processes, conserving 80,000 gallons of wastewater daily. The U.S. Economic Development Administration is assisting this conservation project with a pending grant.
Bosch has been located in Dorchester County since 1974.
