Bosch Rexroth contributes over $420,000 to Greenville Technical College

Bosch Rexroth has committed more than $400,000 worth of training equipment to Greenville Technical College, in addition to a $20,000 Bosch Community Fund grant, to support the creation of a mobile hydraulic lab and Greenville Technical College lab curriculum. Through donations such as this, Bosch continues to assist educational institutions in developing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills of the next generation.

"Finding technically skilled associates has become one of the most pressing issues in our business, especially as we expand to meet the needs of our customers," said Berand Bracht, president and CEO of Bosch Rexroth Americas.  "Greenville Technical College has worked with us closely to establish programs that address critical need.  The top-of-the-line training equipment is a further, significant step in making the training center even better.  We are eager to see how the lab develops, and look forward to a continued close partnership with Greenville Tech." 
 
The new facility, accommodating 18 individuals, will be used for hydraulic technology training, hydraulic performance testing and industry research.  The lab will be housed at the Buck Mickel Center on campus.
