Bosch, a leading global supplier of technology and services, announced plans to expand operations in Anderson County, South Carolina. The company’s $200 million investment will create 350 new jobs.
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, Bosch offers innovative solutions for smart homes, Industry 4.0 and connected mobility.
Located at 4421 S.C. Highway 81 in Anderson, the Bosch 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 in the next few years. The Bosch expansion includes capital upgrades to the Anderson campus, where an estimated 147,000 square feet of floorspace will be developed to manufacture the fuel cell stacks, as well as support clean room and climate-controlled environments required for quality-critical processes. Fuel cell stack production is planned for 2026.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.
Bosch North America President Mike Mansuetti stated, “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.”
