Bosch Rexroth, a supplier of drive and control technologies, announced Oct. 5 that it will move its Charlotte, North Carolina, operations to a new facility in the same region.
Bosch Rexroth said it will move its linear and assembly technology manufacturing facility to a new “factory of the future” in Charlotte. The company has held operations in Charlotte for over 30 years, with the past 26 years at its current location in Steele Creek.
Since experiencing significant growth in its factory automation business, Bosch Rexroth has outgrown its present location and opted to lease and outfit a new, build-to-suit location. The project is scheduled to break ground next year and complete by the summer of 2024.
The new build-to-suit leased property increases the company’s footprint 25% to 227,500 square feet, providing space for expansion in the future, Bosch Rexroth said in a press release.
Within the new space, approximately 200,000 square feet is dedicated to lean manufacturing and logistics, providing enough room to optimize flexible manufacturing for changing demands. The remaining 27,500 square feet of space will be dedicated to a customer showroom and innovation center, training facilities, collaboration space, office space, and a flexible galleria that can be used for coworking space, dining, townhall meetings, and other activities. Outside, areas developed for walking paths and spaces to sit help employees connect with nature.
