Bosch breaks ground on technical center expansion
Bosch has held a ceremonial groundbreaking to announce a 220'500-square-foot expansion of Bosch’s Technical Center located at 15000 Haggerty Road in Plymouth Township, Michigan.
The expansion, which is expected to be completed in November 2015, will nearly double the size of the existing technical center, which opened in 2007. When complete, the total site, which is located on 75 acres, will have more than 445'000 square feet and capacity for 1'400 people. The expansion will further enable the growth of several key technologies, including automotive electronics, start/stop motors, electrical drives, and a variety of safety and driver assistance systems that will further advance automated driving. In addition, the new site will provide Bosch with the needed laboratory and office space to co-locate certain associates in southeast Michigan, some of whom currently work in different leased facilities, thereby fostering more innovation and greater collaboration.
