Bosch Expands Anderson, South Carolina, Operations
The facility will be the company’s first production operation of fuel cell technology in the United States. The fuel cell stacks produced will drive hydrogen-powered Class 8 trucks. The expansion includes capital upgrades and the development of roughly 147,000-square-feet of floor space. Fuel cell stack production is planned for 2026.
“The hydrogen economy holds great promise and at Bosch we are all in. This is a significant milestone as we announce the first fuel-cell related production for Bosch in the U.S. to support the growing demand from our customers as part of a diverse approach to powertrain technology,” Bosch North America President Mike Mansuetti said.
As an incentive the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
“Fuel cells have been a promising technology for many years, and it is fitting that this technology is coming to South Carolina where our manufacturing strength has helped many companies bring new innovations to the market. We applaud Bosch for another successful expansion in Anderson County,” added Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
Bosch’s operations are divided into four business sectors: mobility solutions, industrial technology, consumer goods and energy, and building technology. As a leading Internet of Things (IoT) provider, the company offers innovative solutions for smart homes, Industry 4.0 and connected mobility.
