Bosch Opens $58M China Manufacturing Plant
The Bosch Group has invested $58 million in a new security systems manufacturing facility in China. The Zhuhai, Guangdong Providence-based facility is currently the largest manufacturing plant for Bosch Security Systems at 147,000 square feet. The plant is expected to employ 1,500 associates and will support the Asia Pacific region and world market.
“The new manufacturing facility in Zhuhai enables Bosch to increasingly localize manufacturing activities for the Security Systems business division in China, says Dr. Rudolf Colm, member of the board of management responsible for the Asia Pacific region. “Security Systems will provide more competitive products and services through this new facility. The plant also offers us the opportunity to continue our growth in China and abroad with competitive and innovative technologies that better meet the needs of our customers.”
The facility will manufacture intrusion, fire, video, communication, conference and public address systems as well as access control and management systems. It is equipped with advanced surface mount assembly lines, an in-line optical inspection system, electronic in-circuit testers and functional testers. Research and development activities will also take place at the new facility.
