Bosch Rexroth Consolidates Detroit Area Offices

July 11, 2007—

Bosch Rexroth is consolidating its branch offices in the Detroit area, moving its 120 local employees into a 57,000-square-foot facility on Research Drive in Rochester Hills, MI.

According to the company's press release, employees from the  recently acquired Intelligent Hydraulic DrivesTM (IHDTM) unit will begin moving into the facility this month. Associates from the company's Auburn Hills office will complete their relocation at the end of the year.

Berend Bracht, president and CEO of Bosch Rexroth Corp. says, 'We believe the automotive industry and our other industrial customers in the region will see tremendous benefits arising from the full range of services we will offer in close proximity."

IHD, acquired from the Dana Corporation last year, specializes in the development, engineering, and integration of hydraulic hybrid components into motor vehicles.

Bosch Rexroth's existing Auburn Hills facility houses competency centers for all four of the company's industrial technology groups: Electric Drives and Controls, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, and Linear Motion and  Assembly Technologies. It also serves as a regional sales center and hosts several global account management teams.

The Bosch facility is located in the Rochester Hills SmartZone, one of 11 areas in the state creating
clusters of companies in advanced manufacturing and high-technology industries.
