Bosch Rexroth celebrates 50 years in the U.S.

Oct. 10, 2017
Starting with a small office in Easton, Pennsylvania, in 1967 Rexroth grew quickly enough to expand into a newly built hydraulics manufacturing facility 7 years later
2017 marks Bosch Rexroth’s 50th year of continuous operation in the United States. Starting with a small office in Easton, Pennsylvania in 1967 and a handful of associates, Rexroth expanded into a newly built hydraulics manufacturing facility 7 years later, the cornerstone of the company’s current manufacturing campus in Bethlehem, PA.

As Rexroth expanded globally, so did the company’s operations in the United States, eventually identifying itself as “The Drive & Control Company.” Under this claim, Rexroth offered a range of technologies for driving and controlling motion, in applications large and small. Technologies included electric drives and controls, mobile and industrial hydraulics, linear motion technologies and pneumatics. The company’s 2001 acquisition by Robert Bosch resulted in the name Bosch Rexroth, and expanded the product offering to include assembly technologies such as conveyors, tightening systems and aluminum structural framing.

Today, the drive and control specialists operate worldwide in more than 80 countries, and the US presence has grown to multiple manufacturing, customizing and service facilities located throughout the U.S.

To commemorate the occasion, Bosch Rexroth will hold celebrations across the United States throughout the month of October.
