Germany-Based BOS Automotive Products Expands Rochester Hills, Michigan, Operations

Germany-based BOS Automotive Products, Inc. is a division of Baumeister & Ostler GmbH, a global automotive components manufacturer, is expanding production at its facility in Rochester Hills, Michigan. The $1.1 million project is expected to create 50 jobs.

The company will add production square footage, additional dock access, a lab, and warehouse space, and expand production of its first-to-market, fully retractable electric protective cargo cover intended specifically for Rivian R1T electric truck beds.

“As the demand for electric vehicles increases, we are glad BOS Automotive Products, Inc. is able to increase production to meet the needs of Michigan’s innovative automotive industry,” said Ingrid Tighe, Oakland County Director of Economic Development. “The addition of 50 new jobs in Rochester Hills with a strong path for career growth and development is a long-term investment in the people of Oakland County.”

The project is being supported by a $225,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. The city of Rochester Hills has offered to support the project through expedited plan review services and the waiving of fees. Michigan was chosen for the project over competing sites in Illinois and Mexico.

BOS designs and produces innovative mechatronics, kinematics and plastic systems for automobiles that set the standard in convenience, safety, lightweight construction and power efficiency.
