Charleston, S.C. – Electrification means new opportunities. As more electric vehicles come to market and provide consumers with the option for zero tailpipe emission vehicles, new opportunities in manufacturing and jobs are emerging to support the shift to electrification. Bosch announced today the launch of production of electric motors at its Charleston, S.C. manufacturing facility. Additionally, the company plans to invest more than $260 million to further expand production of electrification products at the site, which is expected to create at least 350 net new jobs by 2025.

“We have grown our electrification business globally and here in the North American region,” said Mike Mansuetti, president of Bosch in North America. “We’ve invested more than $6 billion dollars in electromobility development and in 2021 our global orders for electromobility surpassed $10 billion dollars for the first time. Local production helps to advance our customers’ regional electrification strategies, and further supports the market demand for electrification.”
